GEANCO Foundation Leadership Scholarship Summit
Please support GEANCO's inaugral Leadership Scholarship Summit!!
We believe every girl can be a leader. Regardless of where she was born or what she has been told, we believe every girl has the potential to make a positive difference in her community and in our world.
From July 25 - August 1, 2020, our 32 scholarship girls around the country will gather together for a special Summit.
This Summit exists to inspire, equip, and unleash a generation of Nigeria’s young women leaders. Through personal reflection and assessment, sport, debate, and the arts, we create an engaging, youth-centered experience that develops our key leadership traits:
Self-confidence -- Girls recognize and celebrate what is inside of them. They are aware of their leadership style, as well as all the traits that make them uniquely them. Our leaders are able to articulate their values and turn them into action leading to an increased sense of promise and purpose
Critical thinking/Problem solving -- Girls believe that the choices they make matter. Our leaders are able to think through situations, ask questions, and work toward setting and achieving goals
Community -- Girls build lasting friendships, and understand how they can positively impact each other, their families, their communities, and the world at large. Our leaders are able to share their stories with each other as a way of honoring cultural differences, while also embracing their connectedness
Please help make this life-changing Summit possible by donating to underwrite travel expenses for our scholarship girls and the Summit's organizers!!
