About Global G.L.O.W.
Global G.L.O.W., a 501(C)(3) organization, was founded in 2011 on the belief that girls are the planet’s most powerful force for positive change. Empowered girls who have the confidence and tenacity to pursue their dreams generate an upward spiral that transforms families, communities and the world!

Global G.L.O.W. helps transform the lives of strong girls, in grades 5-12, from vulnerable communities around the world, by empowering them to realize their full potential. Through literacy, mentorship, and creative expression programs, we foster confidence, self-esteem, leadership, and resilience in girls who are on the brink of success. This assistance, during a critical period in the development of young girls, is directly linked to an increase in the earning potential of young women, who are less likely to succumb to poverty, have healthier children and fewer unwanted pregnancies.
Though our G.L.O.W. House is in Santa Ana, Calif., our partnerships with LitWorld in New York City and many other community-based organizations throughout the world, Global G.L.O.W. serves over 5,000 girls world wide annually. Our programs and partnerships help build important life skills such as leadership, communication and teamwork. The common goal is to open the minds of young girls to the world of opportunities for their success, and provide emotional support for a healthy inner self.
Global G.L.O.W. believes that each girl is
“One More Girl Changing Our World!”
Global G.L.O.W. envisions a world in which all people
are free to lead lives of their own design.
Global G.L.O.W. ignites the power of women and girls
as a force for global transformation.
