Charity profile

  • Great Girls is an awesome non-profit project run by a diverse group of women in Cape Town, South Africa that aims to bridge the gap between high-school education and full-time employment for disadvantaged girls.
  • We volunteer our time and expertise with young women in grade 11 and 12 who are looking for support. Our goal is to ensure that South African girls leave high school equipped with the skills to either find meaningful full-time employment or to pursue further studies.
  • None of the Great Girls Team is paid or draws from the Great Girls account at all, the team and speakers give of their time freely and with love.
  • Through practical workshops and mentoring, Great Girls coaches its participants on elements that range from interview technique and CV writing to financial budgeting, eloquence, confidence-building and assertiveness, paving the way for a well-rounded individual capable of carving out their own successful career path, regardless of their background.
  • Great Girls nourishes ambition, assists girls who wish to study further, and helps participants search successfully for jobs and bursaries in order to assist them in breaking the cycle of poverty.
