At Rising Girl, our mission is to provide girls aged 11-18 years old with the skills to excel in their future.
Often, girls from disadvantaged backgrounds face an array of barriers that prevent them from thriving. Our free 6-8 week programme aims to teach girls about the importance of safety for themselves and others, greater self-reflection and the skills to encourage them to grow into the best versions of themselves. Teachers have found that after completing the programme, girls have improved behaviour and more engaged with their learning. Girls have found the programme enjoyable and have learnt many skills, including:
Education is associated with better health, a greater standard of living and has been found to be beneficial to communities. We hope that girls who participate in the Rising Girl programme will leave with confidence and the life skills to rise to whatever their future may hold.
