Because of our relationship with BRAC and our own Chicks Against Child Brides program, we are always on the lookout for other great companies and organizations that also promote women’s empowerment. There is a wonderful non-profit right here in our city of Austin that has been making a difference in the lives of girls since 1996. The organization is called, GENaustin – Girls Empowerment Network.
GENaustin’s mission is to support and guide girls to make wise choices as they navigate the unique pressures of girlhood. Their programs include afterschool clubs, workshops and an annual conference called “We Are Girls” for girls and the adults that care about them. GENaustin also has an innovative program working with girls who are involved or at high-risk of becoming involved with the juvenile justice system.
