Meet the Ambassadors
“It's up to us to rally for her.”
I believe that changing one girl's life is helping women everywhere. A rising tide, lifts all ships. We all have something to contribute to the world and if a voice, a choice, and a bank account is what stands between a woman and her ability to live a fulfilling, safe, empowered life. Hearing how Elimu Girls helps girls start businesses and how it helps them cultivate more safety and possibility, not only for themselves but for their families and siblings too, had me reflecting on how women are still fighting today for basic needs and rights.

She is originally from New York, now in Colorado and helps businesses world-wide make more impact and income doing what they love.
"[Elimu Girls] gives me hope for the future generations of women."
I am so honored to be part of the mission of Elimu Girls. Having been a young woman who struggled through her own physical and financial hardship, it inspires and empowers me to provide the love, help, and support for these girls that I wish I had. Helping to provide these shining lights with love, time, energy, and financial resources to give them a better life and allow them to fulfill their dreams gives me hope for the future generations of women, as well as reinvigorate my own dreams and passions.

"I love the creative projects and tangible skills these girls are learning"
It has been such a pleasure working with Cindy and getting to know many of the women that Elimu Girls directly supports. There is something special about seeing an organization like Elimu Girls where the founder's feet are on the ground, directly working with the beneficiaries. It feels like the ultimate act of service to support these incredible young women, and give them the tools, resources and belief in themselves to start their business, support their families and change the entire trajectory of their future.

"Your voice is your gift. Step onto your stage."
I was drawn to work with Elimu Girls because I believe deeply in healing ourselves and changing the trajectory of our lives – and the lives of everyone around us. Working with EG makes me feel a deep sense of connection to the struggles that all women face and the power of insight and community to heal our collective wounds and rise above. I love the intimacy of working with EG. My authors and I have been blown away every time we receive a personalized message from the women of Kenya sharing their gratitude and reading one of our books.
