August 2018 will be GIRLS 4 GIRLS' third consecutive year facilitating our theatre empowerment workshop at Thoo Mweh Khee.
Our last visit (August 2017) consisted of daily drama class facilitated by our teaching artists and founders; followed by a girls and women's afternoon empowerment workshop.
The real heart and soul of our trip is to work with the young women of the community on their self image, empowering them in a society where a woman's voice is easily shrouded by the man's. Teaching these young women that they are capable of greatness no matter where they are from, their socioeconomic background and especially their gender.
