The statistics on Kenyan girls from poor families are sobering and alarming. Because few attend school, they can't imagine a future of anything but poverty. Unfortunately, others in the community reinforce the message that Kenyan girls can’t learn valuable skills or eventually have a rewarding career. At the Camp Ohana Foundation, we intend to change that by supporting our girls mentoring program. With training and encouragement from adult role models, we believe that these girls can grow to become self-sufficient and make a powerful difference in their communities.
Carefully Matched Mentors
When a girl joins our mentoring program, we carefully match her with an adult woman who shares her interests and is successful in her own career. Our mentors spend quality one-on-one time getting to know the girl. This is the best way for the mentor to understand the dreams of her new young friend. Mentors model leadership and, most importantly, reprogram the girl's internal message that she can't succeed. We believe that all young Kenyan girls are capable of great things when they are supported and nurtured.
Girls in our mentoring program also have the opportunity to hear guest speakers and complete weekly curriculum on career training. We don't expect girls at this young age to know exactly the type of work they want to do in the future. Instead, we provide reading material that allows them to explore numerous types of careers on their own. Of course, we are there to encourage them if they do discover something they want to pursue.
It Doesn't Take Much to Help Our Girls Mentoring Program
Our foundation understands how easy it is to feel discouraged about problems like this and feel there is nothing you can do. We have made it easy for you to support girls in need with our $5 monthly micro donation program. Please contact us to learn more about this or other sponsorship options.
