The Newest from 4GGL: It's 2017, the TIME to Empower World's Girls -- Some Wisdom from our Founder Jin In Published in The Huffington Post -Time to Empower World's
4Girls GLocal Leadership (4GGL) is a non-profit organization and a social change movement.
Our mission is to take bold action to develop tomorrow’s women leaders, TODAY
and to transform antiquated mindsets about girls in the developing world.
We envision a world where every girl is valued
and supported to realize her full potential.
We are actively generating a NEW POWER source – the next generation of empowered female leaders
who will transform our world. We believe it is the solution to every single global challenge we are facing today.
The LARGEST population in history holds the key to our future:
nearly 1 BILLION girls and young women in the developing world.
These girls have the potential to lead themselves and their families out of poverty,
bringing about stability and prosperity in their society, and ending extreme violence that threatens us all.
Astonishingly, they are voiceless and invisible. They lack access to education and health services. They’re vulnerable to HIV and AIDS. They face unimaginable challenges, violence, abuse and harmful cultural practices, like child and forced marriage and female genital mutilation.
And… all this begins even before they are born—simply because they are girls.
Over 100 million baby girls have been killed, aborted, and neglected to die, because they had XX chromosomes.
4GGL values GIRLS—every single one on our planet.
Girls everywhere have the right to live with dignity.
4GGL is a labor of love. We are women leaders, an all-volunteer team
with unique individual expertise taking collective action to propel the movement.
