Girls Here and There is an international mentoring organization for girls ages 6-18. Our goal is to empower young girls and women through international interaction, purposeful communication and mentorship. To us, education and empowerment are the solutions to all global issues. Our vision includes millions of intelligent, creative girls receiving an education. It involves older girls sharing their wisdom and their attention with younger girls, gaining confidence and knowledge in the process. International communication will expose girls to new cultures and allow them to share their own cultures, expanding their global and educational perspectives.
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
Mentors (One in the U.S. and one in a developing country) aged 13-18 will collaborate digitally to develop leadership skills and strategies, which they will then use to mentor girls ages 6-12 at local elementary schools.
Our vision is to address educational inequity in developing countries through multilingual education, international communication, mentorship and cultural sharing. We envision a world in which disadvantaged girls have the chance to gain exposure to girls in other countries, growing academically and personally through mentorship and communication.
