About GSG: How We Slay

Girls supporting girls believes that educated girls can change the world. We work to erase gender barriers in education and empower our own children to be agents of change.

We partner with international nonprofit groups including buildOn, Abercrombie & Kent and Schools for Salone to build schools and libraries and provide other educational infrastructure in the world’s neediest countries. By intervening early in the lives of children to provide educational opportunities, the socioeconomic conditions of families, communities and even countries are greatly improved. 

In many parts of the world, the roadblocks to receiving an education don't start and end with proximity to a school. Many schools require students to purchase uniforms, books and other supplies. Some students need bicycles to get to schools that are not within walking distance. GSG provides scholarships to girls to cover these types of expenses. 

While our main focus is children, GSG also funds adult literacy programs with buildOn. Parents and grandparents attend evening programs in the same schools their children attend during the day, learning to read, write and do basic math through the lens of health, agriculture and relevant life skills. Participants put their skills to use through income-generating activities such as gardening, textile production and animal husbandry.

We’re not afraid to get our hands dirty!  GSG sent groups of adults and teens to Malawi in June 2018 and to Guatemala in 2022.  We helped break ground on schools in both locations, working alongside the families in the communities to dig latrines, lay bricks, mix cement and more. Another group will be heading to Senegal in the summer of 2024 to help start construction on our next school.

GSG offers programs for Chicago and other area schools to teach children about their peers around the globe and empower them to help others. Our programs are fun and educational, providing participants an opportunity to flex their muscles as leaders both within their local communities and the world. Contact us to learn more or bring a program to your child’s school. 

 We also partner with other local nonprofits to provide help to students close to home, including funding the purchase of laptops and broadband access for remote learning situations.
