Do you feel weighed down when you think of all the derailers that exist in teen girls’ lives today? Do you wish that there were more opportunities for young girls to find their true inner self, explore their inner strength & prepare for their future? We understand the challenges young girls face today. Therefore, we created the perfect opportunity to support girls as they navigate their way through the ups & downs of life. The Girls Like Me Summer Camp which took place from the 23rd – 26th August, propelled girls to defend, protect & create their future!
Being a teen girl in the world we live in today can be really challenging. Several derailers constantly surround them. With the pandemic being a disruptor, teen girls feel more instability than ever before.
But all is not lost! When girls are provided with the ideal opportunities & an environment where they can feel safe, seen & supported, they’re equipped to live their lives in a meaningful way. Through our Summer Camp workshops, which included learning effective self-defence techniques as well as focusing on who our role models are, we were able to support girls in not only creating but also protecting their future.

We held virtual morning workshops too, which focused on building confidence, resilience, motivation and becoming the best versions of ourselves. Here’s some insightful feedback from the attendees:
The morning learning sessions were very insightful. Encouraging me to focus on my achievements, keeping it consistent. Inspiring me to put words into actions.Emma
The understanding that I gained from the morning workshops was that failure is part of success and it’s something I’d never grasped before!Anonymous
I was able to understand the key factors that build resilience. I also realised what motivates me in life and was therefore able to pinpoint the things that demotivate me. They were eye-opening sessions for me!Alisha
