Global G.L.O.W.’s largest initiative, the HerStory Campaign, works in 23 countries to listen to, amplify and champion the voices of girls through innovative after-school programming designed to cultivate modern literacy skills and foster self-advocacy. We work alongside UN Women, girls’ rights NGOs, universities and key stakeholders to mentor girls to share their stories, advocate for themselves and transform their communities. Global G.L.O.W. founded the HerStory Campaign in partnership with LitWorld, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, bringing to the campaign their strong heritage in literacy education for children and communities..

HerStory Theory of Change
Social-Emotional Learning + Literacy & Self-Expression Skills + Dynamic Mentorship
= Self-Determined Independence and Community Improvement
When girls aged 10 – 18 are provided a pathway of programming that includes:
Literacy and self-expression skills
Girls will demonstrate the following four outcomes:
Improved future outlook
Improved sense of self (self-esteem)
Improved capacity for community engagement
Improved academic achievement
With these four outcomes girls will:
Become economically independent
Be equipped to envision and pursue a secure and fulfilling future
Actively engage in improving their communities and feel they have the power to make positive change
“When she tells her story she begins to exist on her own terms. Her story is her own. Not written by culture. Not written by government. Not written by a society that tells her no. It is her story, it is her voice.”
-Dr. Rose Opondo, Kenya HerStory Partner
