Our Mission

The Power to Do Something is a non-profit organization that seeks to educate, empower, and inspire underprivileged girls, women, and orphans  across the African continent to reach their fullest potential. We fund scholarships, provide literacy, vocational, and self-esteem I.M.A.G.E. campaign, as well as mentorship and health workshops through partnerships with like-minded organizations and government agencies. We believe that an investment in girls and women is an investment in the world. 

We don't believe in giving girls and women a HANDOUT, we give them a HAND UP.
