About the Event
Our team is committed to accelerate young women's direct access to the learning tools, resources, and supportive community they need to start and lead rewarding lives and lift themselves out of vulnerability and/or poverty.

(1) Opportunity; (2) Confidence; (3) Role Model and (4) Power Jacket.
