Empowering women & girls isn’t just the business of well, women. It affects all of us, no matter what our age or gender. We all have a women or girl in our life that we care about – our mum, sister, daughter, friend, colleague.

We can all do something to build strength in those who have need a little support, because when we do, we build stronger families and communities.

Go, Girl Power!
