Meet our first Grantee of 2019!
Dignified Children International in Kenya addresses the challenges of young girls in rural areas and focuses on expanding opportunities for disadvantaged girls. Our support will allow the organization of 7-week long personal development workshops in central Kenya for vulnerable girls to empower them to dream bigger. Classes on responsible adulthood, economic independence and college preparedness will be taught, and many activities will be geared towards self-confidence, communication, problem solving and leadership. Participants are then invited to a 7-day camp where girls meet with experts in different careers and participate in peer-to-peer learning in a relaxed environment. Activities include themed sports, hiking excursions, group art sessions as well as one on one time with various mentors. These workshops and the camp are a platform to teach these young girls a variety of skills which will help them successfully navigate the transition into adulthood.
