Our “GIRL TALK” Empowerment Journey with Betty Makoni

Our “GIRL TALK” Journey

The concept of “GIRL TALK” was birthed by Sherry Peters and Abigail Yeboah-Boafo, an unbeatable mother and daughter team that have had a dream to empower young girls to reach their full potential since 2009.

“Our vision is to empower a generation of young women with the confidence to not only survive but to surpass their circumstances and situations.”

However the actual journey began after attending the Women’s International Fair and meeting Betty Makoni. The conference was just what we needed to wake us up or to light the proverbial fire under us to fervently begin to set our passions in motion.

Meeting with Betty on May 11th gave us the insight and direction on what it takes to help fulfill our vision for the young women of Ghana.

Betty is allowing us the opportunity to dream our own dream and she has decided to pledge her support for the launch and establishment of GIRL TALK, which we are so grateful for. We will be availing of Betty’s wealth of knowledge and leadership skills by training under her for the next two weeks over Skype.

On the 13th of May 2011 our ground work continued as we took to the streets of Accra talking and sharing with young girl hawkers to gain the understanding and knowledge surrounding their circumstances.

We are well on our way to seeing our dream become a reality.

Thank you Betty, for all your help and support.

Love Sherry and Abigail
