I am a believer in the power of women. A huge part of who I am today has to do with how my mother raised me. Mothers have a significant influence in their children’s lives . During my formative years, my mother was there guiding me and coaching me . The love and care mothers share with their children lays the foundation for their children’s character in the future.
Mothers or women in general, are now more, should I say versatile. They are no longer simply homemakers, but are involved in various industries. Teachers, scientists, doctors, lawyers, you name it, women are there. No longer just a man’s world I tell you.
Empowering young girls to excel is what I bring to Camp Ohana Village. Showing them opportunities they never knew existed and helping them reach their full potential is at the heart of our Girls mentoring program.
10 years ago when I began Camp Ohana Foundation, I empathize with the young girls women in the village especially after hearing their stories. Their level of self-confidence and self-esteem was very low.
This is the very reason why I developed the Girls Mentoring Program at Camp Ohana village . We are all equal in this world. What a man can do, a woman can do and vice versa. By bringing in women leaders from various parts of the world to Camp Ohana village, the young girls can see that, yes it is possible for a woman to excel in any field.
Today all the young girls at Camp Ohana Village know have high self esteem and know that they have the potential to achieve significance if they actively pursue their dreams and live a life of purpose
An empowered woman empowers a child. Simple math, – what we instill in the minds of women they pass it on to their children. Hence, we are working towards creating future global leaders.
“To all the little girls who are watching, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams.” —Hillary Clinton
