Studio Samuel arms at-risk girls to reach their potential through education + employable skills.
Studio Samuel opened its doors in 2015 to the first class of 25 girls. Today, we've reached over 2,200 girls. When girls are denied education in our community, they face child marriage, child labor, and trafficking. Studio Samuel addresses this head-on through its life-skills program, Training for Tomorrow, to introduce a teach a woman to fish model for safe-options in their future.
Through its flagship impact program Training for Tomorrow , Studio Samuel prepares adolescent girls living in poverty with critical skills. The program is held after school and on weekends at Studio Samuel’s Training Center and includes occupational training, counseling, mentoring, computer programming, karate classes and access to healthcare. The curriculum (outside of karate) is comprised of modules successfully used in case studies conducted by UN-based partners in developing countries. Students range in age from 9-18.
Two arms of the program have been certified as a college, expanding its reach to 18-24yo young women and the government has expanded Training for Tomorrow programming across four city districts.
