She is Strong is a small organisation dedicated to empowering and providing aid to all women.
We are currently an independent campaign organisation with plans to become a registered NPO in the near future. At the moment, we are working with existing charities, helping to promote their cause.
We are working with Hector A Cafferata Jr. Elementary school located in Cape Coral, Florida.
She is Strong - After School is a program for girls ages 8-11. It’s goal is to develop their leadership skills and help them connect with their community and see their needs.
This is just a pilot program but we are hoping to expand to other schools starting next year!
