Girl Power

Leadership, self-esteem and unity

Girl Power is an IMA motto that signifies leadership, self-esteem and unity.

The design of the Girl Power Program is to bring lecturers from Guinea and different parts of the world to speak to girls in many different types of settings.

Most speakers have come from the Office of Women in Sports and Young Guinean Women on the Move. We intend to continue to put successful girls and women in front of as many young Guinean girls so they can be motivated to stay in school and complete their education.

Educational Scholarship

The ESP Program was initiated in 2012 to fill a void in scholarship opportunities for girls from primary school to university level of education who have the desire to attend school, but don’t have the financial means. The scholarships go towards a variety of needs: tuition, transportation, school fees, tutors, internet access, school uniforms and school supplies.

Evidence shows that parents with limited resources generally support their sons in going to school before their daughters, which underscores the lower value society attributes to girls’ education as opposed to boys’ education.

The main focus of this initiative is not only to give girls the opportunity to go to school, particularly Primary School, but also to assist them in staying in school and graduating from Secondary School.

To date more than thirty girls have been assisted through this program.


Girls Mentoring Program

This Girls Mentoring Program is designed to give girls an avenue to talk to an adult who has agreed to communicate at least monthly with the girls through: internet, personal visits, an phone calls.. Mentors have come from: UNICEF, Helen Keller Foundation, NEED inc./USA, Rice Youth Development Corporation/ USA and individuals who have expressed an interest in becoming mentors.
