Stealth Sisters prepares girls to be leaders

By Allie Renar | Operations & Finance Manager

August marked the 5th month of the current Stealth Sisters cohort! The girls have advanced in all areas including English, computers, and women’s empowerment.

 

Last month, Program Manager Shogofa Amini began interviewing students in this program to get their perspectives on classes. Currently, we are working on producing a documentary in partnership with the on-the-ground program leaders to share more about the brave girls in these courses. 

 

In August, girls in the Stealth Sisters program learned about domestic violence and depression. These hot-button issues led to many debates and discussions which further improved the students' English and critical thinking skills. Additionally, girls learned about menstrual hygiene and developed strategies for improving mental health. 

 

One of the critical impacts of this program is that these topics help girls cope with the situations they face at home and prepare them to have difficult conversations with their friends and families, advocating for themselves and each other against violence, early marriage, and the isolating effects of depression. 

 

Want to support Stealth Sisters further? Sahar is participating in the Safer World Matching campaign with a goal to raise $10,000 to support 6 girls in the Stealth Sisters 6-month program.
