We facilitate life-skills workshops for girls in Grade 11 and Grade 12 at high schools in marginalised communities that are characterised by a lack of exposure to opportunities. Our workshops are conducted during the second and third terms (April to September) depending on funding. The workshops have a strong focus on skill-building exercises that support the girls’ development. Our workshops further allow us to identify girls who can become our Little Sisters in order for them to benefit from the support and mentorship of our Big Sister Network.
