Girls to Women Video

Equality's female empowerment group, Girls to Women, went to a conference to improve their skills. After they returned from the conference, they held a Town Hall Meeting where they had led a deep discussion turn keying the information they learned at the conference to other scholars. This was then followed by an interactive activity that allowed our ECS girls to value themselves and each other.
