This eleven-week online program allowed our 2020 cohort to participate in Girls Gearing Up from the safety of their own homes in eleven countries around the world. Together, we explored the core Girls Gearing Up pillars - building an international network and growing confidence; practicing concrete leadership and communication skills; and inspiring girls to take action on issues that are important to them.
In the midst of all of the challenges facing the world today, these girls are standing up and taking action, and making important positive strides in their communities. Since August, our girls have run for class president, participated in protests and conferences, and developed project proposals for bringing GGU to their home countries. They are truly making a difference and we are so very proud of them.
Now more than ever, we are committed to inspiring and equipping the next generation of globally-minded female leaders, and we are so thankful for the support of our donors and partners.
