In 2011, GGI began as part of a church ministry seeking to combat many of the ills and challenges facing young women ages 12-18. As the progression of the ministry and need of the community continued to expand, systematic steps were taken to organize a greater impact. GGI formally became a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization in 2014 with an intention of impacting girls around the world.
Now, through conferences, classes, talk sessions, and other initiatives, hundreds of young women from local communities, churches, schools, and the Georgia foster care system are being trained, inspired and motivated to believe in and walk out their destinies. Girls are coached on insights which support strong self-esteem as an essential element in today’s changing and challenging world.
“When I was younger, I was bullied and that caused me to have low self-esteem. Although I have a high self-esteem, that still weighs on me from time to time. Today taught me that I am not the status quo. I am not what he or she perceives to be beautiful or popular. I am beautiful and unique.”
Empowering young women through personal, professional, community, cultural development, mentoring and entrepreneurship with a focus on the creation of jobs in our local and global communities.
Our vision is to impact the world one girl at a time.
