Charity Spotlight: Strong Women, Strong Girls

by | Dec 14, 2020 | Lifestyle

This Giving December we are highlighting charities that are near and dear to the Liweli team. My name is Joanna and I’m the social media gal for Liweli. (Go follow @liweli_wellness if you aren’t already!!) I’m choosing to highlight the organization Strong Women, Strong Girls. Their mission is to empower girls to imagine a broader future through a curriculum grounded on female role models. Strong female role models have played a huge role in my personal story and an organization centered around providing these mentorship roles to young girls, is something younger me would have only dreamt about.

In college, I was a Gender and Sexuality Studies major (shoutout Stonehill College). I spent four years learning, researching, and working towards understanding the complexities of gender inequality and I couldn’t have done it without powerful female role models. My professors constantly pushed me to work harder, my friends constantly told me to work less, and my family always supported me. I know the power of female role models because my life has been shaped by them. And that’s a privilege and an experience I never take for granted. 

Strong Women, Strong Girls works to counter the social pressures that discourage girls in under-resourced communities by combining multi-generational group mentoring to build a community of strength around every girl. Combining the powers of girls, college women, and professional women to each work together to help the next. They say it takes a village and Strong Women, Strong Girls wants to make sure no one goes without it. 

As a member of Team Liweli, I am excited that we have dedicated the entire month of December to offer our customers the opportunity to give $10 to the charity of their choice on us with every $49+ Liweli purchase. This December I will be giving to Strong Women, Strong Girls and I hope you’ll join me in supporting the amazing girls and women in your community.
