Girls Health Ed is a community-based nonprofit organization providing comprehensive health education to disadvantaged girls and young women in the US and Kenya. Girls Health Ed knows that empowered girls become empowered women, which is why the team and its 40+ volunteers have been working hard to eliminate gender gaps through health education workshops.
Girls Health Ed commemorated International Women’s Day by launching its new website. During puberty, many girls fall behind, stop participating in sports they love, and develop low self-esteem. Girls Health Ed’s new site now includes resource pages for girls, schools, parents and volunteers to help ensure that every girl is able to become the woman she is meant to be.
