17 million girls alive today will never be given the opportunity to go to school.
Of the 106 million children who should be attending primary school but aren’t, almost 60% are girls. At the secondary level, it’s even worse: worldwide, only 30% of all girls go to secondary school.
But studies show that when you provide educational opportunities to girls, society as a whole benefits:
- Fewer girls become child brides
- Fewer women die in pregnancy or childbirth
- Fewer children die before the age of five
- Fewer children suffer malnutrition
- More children get vaccinated
- More children receive an education
That’s why we’ve made it our mission to educate girls all over the world – and empower them to become leaders who create positive change in their communities.
Global Sorority works to improve the lives of girls and young women by offering them sustainable leadership training that supports their growth and education and gives them the inner tools necessary to best utilize their own abilities and resources.
We understand the complex cultural and economic realities that many girls around the world are forced to navigate. These issues won't change overnight. That’s why our programming meets girls where they are, positively impacting their lives no matter what their culture or economic circumstance might be.
Sowing the seeds of success
Global Sorority’s Elements of Success leadership training program teaches girls and young women how to develop the inner resources they need to succeed in any situation or circumstance – and how to apply these skills right away and throughout their lives.
Participants learn how to:
- Better utilize each level of their education
- Feel confident to lead in the workplace and within their communities
- Enhance their communication skills
- Share their new found skills and voice with other young women
- Understand that they are of great value!
This last realization alone will speed up the societal shift that has to take place in order to support true gender equality. Girls must first believe they’re worthy and capable or all of the formal education in the world won’t have a real and lasting impact.
Along with our Elements of Success program, we also support gender awareness education through the Global Sorority documentary film series.
It’s our goal to provide an online platform for girls to connect, receive mentorship and ongoing leadership training, as well as a sense of community through local chapters that uphold the true meaning of global sisterhood.
Would you like to have a lasting and positive impact in the world? Well it begins right here in your own community.
