While gender norms have suppressed females from reaching their potentials, BHC partners with Paper Crown to provide a Female Empowerment Curriculum to help tackle low self esteem, low confidence, and increase young females’ knowledge on their rights and freedoms.  This program is offered to 30, 16-18 year old females in hopes that leaders will emerge from this training to be able to implement the program to all females in the BHC program.  The program focuses on:

  • Leadership
  • Gender Education
  • Gender Based Violence
One girl in class had said that she couldn’t stand for herself or express her opinion in public , but I was surprised to see her in front of the class, explaining things. I used her as an example and complemented her to keep trying slowly by slowly. I know she will reach her goals.
