W.E. Can Lead
Our Galentine's Day Campaign addresses one of the most seemingly basic yet major needs of our girls in Sierra Leone. $10 provides one girl with feminine products and deodorant for an entire year! Where our girls are located, not having access to these essentials during their menstrual cycle literally keeps girls away from school. Partnering with us for this campaign is not just providing feminine care; it is investing in the education, self-esteem and futures of girls in Sierra Leone. Support our gals this Galentine's Day.
W.E. (Women Everywhere) Can Lead is a nonprofit organization founded by Isha Sesay to support young girls in her home country of Sierra Leone. The reality of a young girl in Sierra Leone is unfortunately one that is little valued by her surrounding circumstances. About 28% of girls aged 15-19 are mothers or pregnant with a first child. Furthermore, 33% of secondary school-aged girls are not in school. 18 years old is the median age for a female's first marriage. So what do we do? W.E. Can Lead helps girls combat these statistics by providing the following opportunities:
We achieve these goals through a custom designed hands-on curriculum that includes topics such as communication skills, self-management, relational and conflict management, strategic planning and project planning. Our methodology is interactive and includes public speaking and debates, community-based group projects, internship opportunities and peer to peer and international mentoring.
