- How self-esteem is about loving themselves, not people loving you
- The difference between a healthy relationship vs an unhealthy relationship
- Obtaining success despite unplanned pregnancy
- Life after sexual abuse & trauma (a lesson of hope)
- The importance of working to earn your own money
- Working provides a sense of pride, achievement, & accomplishment
- Steps to applying for a job & how to do a 30-second commercial
- How to use their God-given gifts and talents to start a business, and...
- Identifying their purpose and finding their passion
- All of the girls were engaged, eager to learn, and motivated to start taking action on their goals and dreams NOW!
But 75% of them, however, will go home to very dark and dyer circumstances, such as sexual exploitation, family sexual abuse, poverty, and little money to stay in
school. You can partner with us to continue our efforts to provide a way for these girls to break cycles of poverty and hopelessness and live their dreams.
Your donation will help us continue to send practical aid such as personal care products, clothing and shoes to the girls, as well as support our Single Sisters
Empowered 2 LIVE! Teen program that we seek to implement, enabling us to continue our educational workshops and ongoing programs.
