Project princess initiative is re-known for the counselling of the girl child in her care. Many girls in their teens find themselves at crossroads not knowing what to do with their abilities, energy, dreams, frustrations and complicated relationships. At PPI, we give GIRLS an opportunity to attend to individual/ group sessions. Counselling is an important part of our work and we believe that once the girls trust the counsellors, they can be willing to seek help and receive it thereby unlocking their potential.
As part of empowering girls and considering that the girls we work with are from impoverished communities with little access to proper career guidance, PPI through its partners and volunteers carry out career guidance sessions at all partner schools and at its center. This is done in efforts to help guide the girls to identify their academic interests and skills of choice. The girls are informed about what courses to pursue, availability of internships pointing at career opportunities and placements.
Project princess initiative offers girls on their program motivation talk sessions. These talks are always offered by experienced people in various fields of work. The sessions are carried out in partner schools and to the girls hosted at the center. We find it important to encourage girls to go after their dreams. Our volunteers, motivators offer a listening ear and help girls to set attainable goals and help then take action and persist to re-enforce hard work.
