Challenge

The girls in our program come from impoverished communities, where gangster-ism and drugs , teenage pregnancy and shootings are rife. Most girls in our program are the first to complete school and apply to a university. They thus don't know how to go about applying. Great Girls assist them in every facet of life to become successful women who will contribute and uplift society. From applying to further study, obtaining a bursary to attending an job interview with a well scripted curriculum vitae

Solution

We at Great Girls keep contact with our girls for 2 and a half years after our introduction program. We try to assist the girls to put a foot in the right direction. We would like to see them with a stable job or studying towards an impacting career. Girls might be excited when doing our initial program, but when the reality of life after school hits, they need someone to show them the ropes and guide them to becoming successful women. When they experience a setback we can motivate them.

Long-Term Impact

'THE FASTEST WAY TO CHANGE SOCIETY IS TO MOBILISE THE WOMEN OF THE WORLD.' CHARLES MALIK We at Great Girls believe that empowering a women, empowers a community. Women tend to look after there families and be more responsible then men as they have greater empathy. Women will look after their families if they succeed in life. WE BELIEVE EVERY GIRL IS CAPABLE OF BEING GREAT, BUT THAT NOT EVERY GIRL IS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE AS GREAT AS THEY TRULY CAN BE; THAT'S WHERE GREAT GIRLS COMES IN...
