The HerStory Campaign listens to, amplifies and champions the voices of girls through innovative after-school programming focused on storytelling, mentorship and self-advocacy. We work alongside key stakeholders such as UN Women, girls’ rights NGOs, universities, and local, grassroots partners in 27 countries to join, support and encourage girls to share their stories, advocate for themselves and create positive change in their communities.
Together with our partners, we provide safe spaces and mentor girls with our unique curriculum, building girls’ confidence by cultivating modern literacy and self-expression skills. We believe that with a strong voice, a girl can transform herself, her future, her community and the world. HerStory makes us all strong. The HerStory Campaign is an initiative of Global G.L.O.W. and LitWorld, two 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations.
LitWorld is a New York-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization with the mission of strengthening kids and communities through the power of their own stories. LitWorld fosters transformational learning experiences during crucial out-of-school time, empowering kids to see themselves as valuable, dignified participants in their community and world. Programs embrace diverse reading and writing experiences, and are scaled through trusting partnerships with grassroots organizations in 26 countries. Through a powerful combination of storytelling, culturally-responsive texts and meaningful mentor relationships, LitWorld creates a positive learning environment that lets kids thrive in their education and independence.
About Global G.L.O.W.
Global G.L.O.W., Global Girls Leading our World, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit incubator that creates and operates innovative after-school programs to mentor girls to advocate for themselves and make their communities stronger. We accelerate girls’ greatness today so that they can build a better tomorrow. We work with girls in 27 countries to overcome barriers and demonstrate improvement in five targeted outcomes: education engagement, self-advocacy, community impact, health and well-being and economic opportunity. Our programs are developed through the insights we learn from listening to the 7,000+ girls in our after-school clubs and summits. We develop and pilot unique programming in Santa Ana, California that we mobilize across our global network to meet the real needs of today’s girls. We approach all of our programming with a proprietary group-mentorship mindset to foster interpersonal relationships between women and girls.
“Literacy is humankind’s greatest and most sustainable innovation: a lifelong protection against vulnerability. Knowing one’s rights, learning about one’s health, connecting to others outside of one’s community, can all save a girl’s life.”
Executive Director, LitWorld
“When you encourage a young girl, her future opens up, and she begins to believe that she can achieve anything she sets her mind to.”
