Every girl has a dream. The S.H.A.U.N. Foundation for Girls was created to help girls and young women have access to opportunities that they need to succeed in life. We believe that we can help reduce the inequities that girls face by focusing on solutions that break down barriers. Once those obstacles are reduced, she can set forth on a path of endless possibilities.

Our girls need support. Even though we have made tremendous strides in the empowerment of females in our society, there is still a lot of work to do. Girls lag behind in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. Serious health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer disproportionately affect black females. Girls of color report that the images they see of themselves in the media today are “overwhelmingly negative” and chip away at their self-esteem. Our sisters across the globe are struggling to have access to a quality education, while others face unimaginable conditions, including child marriage. And, back here at home, lack of opportunities in underserved neighborhoods leads to an endless cycle of poverty and despair.

We know we can’t solve all of the world’s problems facing girls and young women. But, we are eternally optimistic that we can change the paradigm for many and set them on a path to a brighter future.
