The Specifics

Women and girls are the backbone of our communities, so it’s vital to provide them with the resources to allow them to thrive. That’s why GOOD is giving $2,500 to an idea that empowers and uplifts females. How could you positively affect their lives in your community? Perhaps you would teach a computer literacy course to women in Haiti, provide free maternal health advice to new mothers, or hold a retreat to boost self-confidence of local teen girls.

Empower Women and Girls challenge is open for submissions from September 19 to October 17 (noon Pacific Time). From October 18 to November 2 (noon Pacific Time), we’ll open it up to public voting. Rally your colleagues and friends to get behind your effort and join the GOOD community in selecting the winner.

I feel one of the ways to help empowering the mind of our youth is to start with the home. We must make sure our children have a strong foundation to stand on. We must make sure those around our youth have the tools they need to encourage our youth to walk with integrity and not be shame of who they are or where they come from. When weakness is able to be seen from miles away it makes it easy for one to lowering /convince them that sex is the only way to make one feel special or important. Once they have a relationship with Christ Jesus and taste His unconditional love our youth will be empowered not only in the mind but spiritually as well.

We are gearing up to creating and empowering young women leaders that will then impact thousands of other in communities, corporations, schools and governments around the world.

To build a nation, empower women! To destroy a nation, dis-empower a woman.

Heidi's enthusiasm and clarity will definitely rub off on the girls she is mentoring, and demystify the mostly-boys' sport of coding.

Thank you for creating this wonderful initiative for the young women of Kazakhstan. I have visited Kazakhstan and know the people there to be very kind. Their cultural attitude toward orphans is disappointing though. I wish you great success with this campaign.
