What we do

What we do

Inspire
We drive behavioural change within young women to prepare them for meaningful and dignified work. Support young women to build confidence, hope, desire to work and live their full potential.
Teach
We bring life long learning and knowledge to the young women and girls we search. Skills that allow them to work and make a dignified living for themselves and their families.
Connect
We provide a way to connect women, with no prior work experience, into entry-level jobs. We expand the work-ready pool of candidates to include places where existing corporate networks do not currently reach.
