GUIDING PRINCIPLES AND CORE VALUES OF IGA
HOW DOES IGA EMPOWER GIRLS?
Without proper support and guidance, young girls may feel powerless and directionless. Which may lead to decisions that may deter their futures. However, when a young girl finds her spark, she has the potential to impact, change, and inspire the world. The earlier they’re able to find the connection between their spark and education, the more likely they graduate from high school to become global change agents and citizens.
