Playing (Soccer) For Change in Nicaragua
We use soccer, the world's most popular team sport, as a vehicle for positive change in the lives of girls ages 5-20 in Granada, Nicaragua. A team can be the most powerful change agent in a young girl's development, proven to inspire healthy choices regarding drugs, sex, alcohol, academics, and nutrition. Through a combination of on and off-field activities, including school scholarships and tutoring, the program creates pathways to uncommon outcomes for the girls of Granada.
Ensure the Next Generation is Literate
This year we have nearly 100 teens participating in our Leaders & Readers Program. As a result, they are enrolled in high school, attending leadership workshops & providing reading activities to thousands of young children. With your support, these hard working teens will help ensure the next generation has both the literacy and education they need to help move their communities out of poverty.

Since our founding in 2012, Girls Who Code has developed a new model of computer science education designed to inspire, educate, and equip girls with the skills to succeed in both academic and professional careers in technology.
Get the Clothes, Get the Confidence, Get the Job
The project provides interview clothes and interview coaching to out-of-work women. The Smart Works service helps them look professional and feel confident for their upcoming job interview. Women who have been unemployed for a long time, women with disabilities, homeless or abused women and former prisoners are some of the women who will benefit from this project.

Because She's A Leader... is about celebrating the incredible power women have to affect positive change in Myanmar when they are in leadership roles! Our campaign aims to raise awareness and funding for women in Myanmar that aspire to step into leadership roles within policy-making and influential organisations, and to establish themselves as entrepreneurs. We need female leaders as it has a positive ripple on effect both economically and socially throughout communities and the country!
