EMPOWER ME

04.05.16

Since starting Women Leading Change, AG Hair’s CEO and Co-Founder Lotte Davis, started mentoring and leading workshops for the girls in Africa called, Empower Me. Read more about the influential workshop in Lotte’s journal entry.

Since 2008, AG Hair’s Women Leading Change Foundation has been building schools for girls in Africa. With every AG product you buy, we’re asking you to consider contributing one dollar to help build bathrooms and dormitories. And the more people we get involved, the faster we’ll get there.

In a three-part series of posts, we will share with you stories and achievements from students at the Ganze Girls Secondary School in northern Kenya. In part-two, we introduce you to Faith Baya and her goals of becoming a journalist.

It’s back to school time and here at AG we’re excited to share with you a few select stories and updates from our students at the Ganze Girls Secondary School in northern Kenya. In a three-part series of posts, we will share with you these girls stories and achievements from the past year.

After spending the night in Entebbe, we caught an early morning flight in a single engine Cessna to remote Northern Uganda, landing on a dirt airstrip and driving an hour on potholed roads to Atanga Girls School.

The slums are now home to over a million people, in an area the size of New York’s Central Park. And, with virtually no services offered by the government, like sanitation, garbage removal, running water or electricity, the living conditions are deplorable.

This past September, AG’s CEO and Co-founder Lotte Davis travelled to Africa with two friends to visit the schools which Women Leading Change has built or is in the process of building, and to reconnect with the girls she’s come to know. In 11 whirlwind days they took 10 flights, stayed in 8 hotels, visited 6 schools, and travelled countless miles down rutted dirt roads to remote locations.

Wear and Tear: above average
Fulfillment factor: off the charts.

Over the next few months we’ll be sharing their experience here on the Blog.
