Commitment to Action

Expanding the Global Give Back Circle

Commitment by

Global Give Back Circle

In 2009, the Global Give Back Circle (GGBC) committed to helping 100 at-risk girls from Kenya, transition from poverty to prosperity and into employment by providing them with 1) access to a College Education, 2) Mentors, 3) IT Skills &Life Skills, and, 4) Workforce Readiness Training. In return, the girls implement 'Give Back Commitments' in their community, agree to mentor the next generation of girls, and commit to give back once they realize financial independence. This 2009 Commitment is an expansion of a 2008 Commitment that set out to help 35 at-risk girls.
