WLUF Announces it’s 2013 Campaign
Girls Are Worth It!
Women Like Us Foundation’s One Girl at a Time Program encourages, empowers and engages young women through workshops and programs that support healthy self-esteem, education, and strategies for living their best lives.
By helping to shape confident, informed young women we help them to take a path in their lives that is both productive and healthy. We redirect negativity and non-opportunity and give them choices on achieving their personal and professional goals, recognizing their importance in society, the home and in leadership.
