She’s G.O.T. what it takes to be the hero in her own story. With effective resources, education and support, we believe that every girl can be a leader and an innovator in her community.
The Girls of Tomorrow Foundation is a Canadian charitable organization. Our mission is help Ugandan women empower themselves through sustainable projects that enable them gain financial independence. We also support girl’s education by offering full time scholarships, as well as by sponsoring unique experiential learning opportunities.
We believe that girls are empowered by giving back to their own communities, and therefore our programs offer participants the chance to engage in philanthropy projects within their own village.
Our founders Jenna (Canadian) and Majorine (Ugandan) met on a penpal platform on March 10th, 2014. They exchanged stories about women’s experiences in their home countries and realized that they had a shared passion of empowering girls and women. The girls agreed they would partner up in an effort to support girls and women in Majo’s community. In November 2014, they began a project that raised funds to buy candles crafted by Ugandan women. By 2019 officially became the "Girls of Tomorrow Foundation". Today the Girl's of Tomorrow Foundation has a Scholarship Program, a Solar Panel Program, a Permaculture Program, an Entrepreneur Program and a Menstrual Health Program.
