Just Like My Child Foundation is excited to announce our partnership with the principals of Divine Shakti Foundation & Global Interfaith WASH Alliance (DSF & GIWA). JLMC will train the organizations to become implementers of JLMC’s Girl Power Project® within select communities within Rishikesh, India. Translation of Girl Power curriculum into Hindi has begun. Just Like My Child Foundation, Inc. will work remotely and in-person to build capacity and train the DSF & GIWA in Girl Power Project curriculum and implementation with the intention of launching a pilot program to be delivered to vulnerable adolescent girls in Rishikesh, India. Just Like My Child Foundation and Sinew, a pending 501c3 non-profit corporation, are pleased to announce a partnership to bring JLMC’s evidence-based Girl Power Project® curriculum to the members of the Cheyenne River Sioux reservation. The curriculum is being piloted with the girls, schools and families in this community with the intention of modifying the curriculum for cultural relevance so that Girl Power Project® can be implemented in more Indigenous communities within North America.
Just Like My Child Foundation (JLMC) has spent the past 13 years supporting vulnerable adolescent girls and their families, beginning in Africa. In 2020 we began working in the US with indigenous Native American girls who face unspeakable odds, and in India with girls who live in near constant uncertainty. The isolation and unknowns we face today aren't so different than what our girls face in their lives EVERYDAY.
We teamed up with JJ Virgin, Tim Organ, Mike Koenigs, JP Sears and Rockin DJ Sammy Shoe Box Moses and created Saturday Night Fever(less) Dance Party on April 4. With well over 100 attendees and a virtual line-at-the-door, our fundraiser was a streaming success! Watch video one below to meet our partners in India!
Nearly a month after Saturday Night Fever(less) Dance Party, JLMC created the Girl Power Project® Game Show Hour for Mother's Day. It was not only a fun hour of edu-tainment trivia, dancing, and prizes, but we shared special updates from our partners in the US, Africa and India.
