Mission

Hewalenamo Girls, Inc. is dedicated to providing educational opportunities by financially assisting girls from impoverished families; helping to pay their school fees and seeking to remove the obstacles that keep them from school or cause them to drop out.

"Educating girls yields a higher rate of return than any other investment available in the developing world."

- World Bank

Vision

A world in which all girls can lead empowered lives due to their access to education. The hard facts are:

~ In a majority of developing nations, there is little motivation to educate girls especially if they can go to work instead of going to school

~ Girls are often viewed as a burden to be married off as soon as possible while a family may pool resources to move a promising boy forward

~ Education is the key to hope and a better life

 

We seek to combat this problem with a unique, community-based program that offers long-term assistance and support to girls selected by staff and members of the local community as being most in need of help. We are committed to:

~ Improve the quality of lives of underprivileged girls by giving them the opportunity to gain an education now so they will have hope for a better future

~ Empower girls through our annual Empowerment Camp, where they will discover who they are in Christ, focus on building self-esteem, leadership skills, and goal setting

The benefits associated with girls’ education:

~ Reduction of child and maternal mortality

~ Lower birth rates

~ Increase in women political participation

~ Protection of young ladies from HIV/AIDS, abuse and exploitation
