the project

Little Women: Celebrating Unique began as a virtual educational series for young girls during women’s history month each Saturday in March of 2021. It is now the catalyst for Little Women Speak (LWS), an organization with a hybrid design of online and in-person engagement.

Purpose: LWS is a hybrid public speaking platform designed to grow little women ages 7-13 into leaders, activists and change agents of tomorrow.

Mission and Vision: We seek to activate the voices of little women through mentorship and teaching the art of public speaking. 

The Building Blocks Campaign: We are in the infant stage of building a premier public speaking organization for young girls. There are key elements aka, “the building blocks” essential to firmly establishing an organization and transitioning to an official non-profit entity. The funds and support received will assist in the startup operations for quarter one of 2022.

"The Building Blocks" campaign is the launch pad to provide start up costs for us to begin the work in laying the foundation of quarter one, brick-by-brick.

why we're doing it

Did you know:

  • The confidence of young girls between the ages of 8-13 drops by 30%
  •  7 out of 10 report having low self-esteem and low confidence 
  • Public speaking is among one of the top fears

We are proactive in countering low self-esteem and fear of public speaking by beginning early with a population of young girls ages 7-13! Join the mission! Activate the movement!
