2Why choose a Girltivity Box?
Invest in a girls future today!
1. From Primary to High School girls self-esteem and confidence drops 3.5 times more than boys.
2. Women hold less than 23% of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) jobs.
3. Women hold only 15-25% of TOP decision making positions.
4. Only 3% of female driven Start-ups get funded.
5. Research has shown that girls in a girls-only school were stronger, confident and more capable of becoming leaders. Seeing the key roles such as princple, head of departments and teachers were held by females, inspired the girls to succeed. They didn't question whether it is possible for girls to become leaders as it was proven girls can and are doing it.
…and this is the true story why a mum and dad invested all they had in the dream of their 5 year old daughter.
P.S. it is too important not to share!
