One Girl Can matches girls and young women with mentors to provide the tailored support necessary to empower them to achieve their dreams.
Girls growing up oppressed by extreme poverty and gender inequality are rarely asked what they want to be when they grow up. For many, they’ve never been given a chance to think about what they want in life.
One Girl Can gives girls the freedom to explore their aspirations through a series of empowering workshops. Then, throughout their time with One Girl Can, girls receive one-on-one mentoring and coaching to develop their self-worth, create a plan for their future, and accomplish their goals.
EMPOWER ME WORKSHOPS
Every year, girls take part in a progressive goal-setting program which is taught to every girl at all our partner schools. These interactive workshops craeted by One Girl Can teach goal setting, strategic thinking, and help girls to build confidence, and create a plan for career development. Each year of the program builds on the previous workshops to give the girls the tools, motivation, and confidence to set and attain their goals.
