Who Run the World?... GIRLS... So much for subject-verb agreement - but I must admit, it adds a little sass.For the last few months, my main focus here in Ganja has been RUN THE WORLD (RTW)...a girls' club for students in 9th grade through University. The goal is to create a safe and uplifting environment where girls can come to feel safe, strong, and confident. We choose monthly topics for discussion and activities...body image, health and fitness, leadership, etc.
This may not sound like much in a world where a girl can do just about anything she pleases - but that's not the kind of world these girls live in. These are girls that are struggling with limited options, little-to-no say in their futures, and a culture where their value is often limited to the kitchen.
The girls of RTW are seeking some help with funding for the summer and fall activities. If you are so inclined, you can help us out by making a tax deductible donation through the following link...

Thanks so much for your help! These girls can run the world, and it'd be a much better place if they did.
