Girl Power is officially guided and funded by World Democracy Network and is a six month long fellowship program where 15 young girls of diverse educational and professional back ground but with similar agendas come together to create a whirlpool of positive changes in their community through team work, mentor-ship and leadership enhancement. Through this project young girls are oriented and make them known to myriad topics of power and politics, good governance and youth entrepreneurship. Based on their learning these young change-makers will carry out a project of their own to start a ripple effect of positive change in their lives, on their friend’s and families lives and ultimately their whole community.
“Leading is not going out front and hoarding opportunities for yourself, it is about team effort”.
“We will grow together, inspire each other, refine one another and lead for good, starting from right here and right now”.
Women’s Day 2019 #Balanceforbetter
Give skill in the hands of women and they will win the whole nation.
This years women’s day theme was rightly portrayed by our young and enthusiastic members who performed flashmob stances to spread a positive message that every woman is ‘POWERFUL’, ‘CAPABLE’ and ‘BEAUTIFUL’.
From preparation phase to execution phase these young women were leaders. Women’s day was celebrated as a part of the project GIRL POWER initiated in support of Women Democratic Network.
