Mentoring and life skills
Many of the girls we work with are among the first in their families and communities to finish secondary school. To help them meet the challenges they’ll face along the way, we employ mentors, or social mobilizers as we call them—who act as role models, counselors and advocates for the girls. In addition to serving as excellent examples of educated, empowered women in the community, our social mobilizers provide emotional support and guidance to help the girls along their own individual journeys.
We also facilitate life skills camps and workshops that help each girl develop the skills she’ll need to succeed in school and after graduation, such as self-awareness and empathy, communication and interpersonal skills, decision-making and problem-solving, critical and creative thinking, and coping with stress and emotions.
