Challenge for a Cause:  GWG Leadership Center is a shining light to the community of girls in St. Ann and St. Mary Jamaica.   Our mission is See More

THE STORY:

Girlz with Goals seeks to combat the obstacles currently facing Jamaican girls and provide a viable alternative for success.  The program empowers girls from the inside out, giving them renewed hope and a belief that they are strong, beautiful, valuable and capable of achieving any goal that they set for themselves. Girlz with Goals is organizing ongoing workshops, mentorship programs, journaling programs, field trips and weekend tote bags to fight food insecurity for our hungry students.
