Inclusion refers to the practice of actively engaging and supporting all individuals, including those who may face barriers or face disadvantage, to participate fully in their communities. When working with needy girls during our Mentorship and Empowerment Program, inclusion is promoted through various means such as:
Understanding and respecting diversity: When admitting girls for this program we acknowledge and value their unique backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives of each girl. In the end we end up with students who are orphans, raised with single parents and or come from very needy families just to mention but a few.
Providing accessible resources and support: During the entire 11 week training our team makes sure that the girls have access to resources and support that meet their specific needs and abilities.
Encouraging participation and leadership: This is achieved by giving girls opportunities to take part in activities, make decisions, and lead initiatives that affect their lives and communities.
Fostering a sense of belonging: Here we create a welcoming and inclusive environment where girls feel valued, respected, and supported.
