My daughter isn't quite old enough to actively participate in the exceptional programming at HGHW but I am counting down the minutes until she can. Until then I benefit from their articles, resources and posts as I provide may daughter with a solid foundation to build on in the next phases of her life. I so appreciate HGHW and feel incredibly lucky to have them as a close by resource.
They provide great information and resources to girls not only in our area but all over the country. Their message is one of empowerment for girls and women of all ages. They want our world to be one where women are equals, treated fairly and and are safe in our communities. I adore this organization!
