Why is the S.OA.R. Girl! Spring program important?

  • According to Dove ( 2017) , only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful and only 11% are comfortable describing themselves as “beautiful.”
  • Over half the girls in the world do not have high body esteem which negatively impacts their assertiveness, self-efficacy and increases the likelihood of developing eating disorders or other health issues ( Dove, 2017)
  • Low self esteem is linked to negative emotions ( fear, anxiety or depression), bullying, violence, school dropout rates, teenage pregnancy and low academic achievement (Misetich & Delis-Abrams, 2003)
  • Due to the ambient stress from the global pandemic , 22.6% of children reported depressive symptoms and 18.9% are experiencing anxiety. Our programs provide therapeutic interventions to support girls in expressing their emotions, develop coping strategies and improve their overall well-being.

Our goal is to provide interventions to help girls develop healthy self-esteem and evolve into powerful, courageous and confident leaders.
