Summary

Resonate builds leadership and confidence for women and girls in East Africa through storytelling workshops. For a young woman, self-confidence can be the difference between learning a craft and becoming an entrepreneur, or between having an idea about how to fix a problem and rallying others to implement community-based solutions. By investing in women leaders, you invest in their ability to leverage their knowledge and skills to create a better future for themselves and their communities.

Challenge

The 'confidence gap' is documented through a growing body of evidence, and shows that women are less self-assured than men. That gap translates to missed opportunities for social and economic advancement. It is smart economics to invest in women, but providing access to hard skills and education only is not enough. Building self-confidence and the leadership and self-advocacy that come along with it allows women to take full advantage of opportunities and to close social and economic gaps.

Solution

By raising $5,000, you will provide scholarships to 150 women and unlock their leadership potential. It takes 10,000 hours to become an expert in a new skill, but it only takes a few days to shift a mindset and create a lifetime impact. These young women learn to identify values and strengths, to set measurable goals, to advocate for themselves and their communities, and to see themselves as leaders so they can confidently lead the changes they want to see in their lives and their communities.

Long-Term Impact

Since 2014, we have partnered with more than 70 organizations and trained more than 7,000 participants and we have seen incredible impact: 60% of participants take on new leadership roles, 36% start business, and 43% get a new job or promotion. The young women we'll train will create businesses and jobs in their communities, join village councils and advocate for other women, and they further their careers and education. They'll contribute to a world of equal access to opportunities.
