This initiative will provide 120+ young women in 12 countries with development and leadership skills. Creating a shift in the way they see themselves and how they can impact their communities. Global Sorority's mission is to equip the next generation of young women with the tools necessary to lead the way! We are connecting a global network of mentors and peers to support sustainable and positive change. Through our documentary films we will share with you their stories and our programs impact.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
It's no secret that young women need support to gain greater equality in the world. Much has improved in the way of formal education for girls, but with high rates of HIV/ AIDS, teen pregnancies and violence against women, something more needs to be done. Global Sorority's leadership development program fills the gap between a basic education and girls having the tools and confidence necessary in themselves and in their abilities to make positive strides in their communities.
How will this project solve this problem?
This project will touch the lives of those we work with and thousands more who will witness and partake in our facilitated discussion and film screenings. Global Sorority is a movement with a simple formula to create mass change: We provide leadership training to support confidence in young women, the resources to learn, and a platform to share ideas. We want to start a global discussion around positive solutions for girls, by providing a structure for girls to live out their full potential.
