We actively seek to equip girls with leadership skills to make a broader impact on the wider school body and community by providing a platform that enables the girls to speak and act on issues that affect them and those around them. Activities that we engage in to achieve this objective include:
Our scholarship beneficiaries partake in guest lectures or training seminars on areas such as woman’s rights, sex education, and career guidance offered by visiting alumni and other resource persons. This is supported by student-led debates to encourage critical thinking about the relevance and application of these issues.
Scholarship beneficiaries are also mandated to identify and implement a change project. This should include wider participation from other students and thus can be championed by an existing club or group in the school. The change project should address a critical need for the school or surrounding community.
We seek to promote our flagship program, the Girls’ Empowerment Model. Mentorship and peer learning are the two pillars of the Empowerment Model.
Mentors are selected from alumni of beneficiary schools and matched with the scholarship beneficiaries based on background and fit.
Eligible mentors serve as role models who engender a spirited leadership model that inspires girls to achieve their highest potential to become responsible members of society.
The mentors provide guidance for the girls in the areas of academia, career guidance, life skills, and other areas that impact the developmental path of girls, inspiring self-confidence and motivation to achieve their potential.
Participants of peer learning schemes take an active role in personal and career development by sharing experiences and ideas, supporting each other to overcome academic and social obstacles, and learning how to excel in the school environment.
Peer learning programs encourage the formation of study groups and teamwork in the achievement of set goals and objectives.
