Caitlin Landge talks about COI’s mission.
Rakhi is a young girl who leads one of our Girl Talk monthly meetings while also tutoring young children in her community.
Before she was introduced to Girl Talk, she was a local girl in the community finishing up her primary school studies. Now she is working on her graduate degree and volunteers in her local church. She is a confident girl who encourages the other young girls by her example and teachings.
Rakhi’s Girl Talk group has grown from 5+ to 30 each month, and these girls who are usually shy and sit in silence have now become young women with a voice. They answer questions during the meetings, participate in challenges and group work and perform dramas and dances with a positive concept.
Rakhi is not the only one who has been transformed Girl Talk – the young girls she influences have also begun a transformation that will spread throughout their communities.
