During the summer of 2012 we hosted our “Passport to the World” summer camp. The girl’s salsa danced their way through Mexico, ate their way through France, and found calm through yoga in India. Since then each girl has been afforded her very first passport and now we are in the final stages of our biggest project yet!
Below are a list of our final expenses:
What better way to learn about the world than to travel it? In Philadelphia there are no such programs that seek to empower girls through global education. Most programs that do cater to young girls are focused on self-esteem only. We are empowering girls to not only become leaders but to become global leaders and future changemakers! Travel builds confidence and we believe that once girls have confidence within themselves they will be confident in striving for a greater future.
GGG operates as a social enterprise and uses every dollar to be invested into our mission to promote and facilitate global education through travel and cultural exchange. We operate mainly from donations and investments and require parents to subsidize a portion of the travel fees.
