In November and December of 2012, Global Grassroots and The Komera Project launched The Girls Academy for Conscious Change. The partnership adapted Global Grassroots proven social venture incubator to serve the Komera Scholars during their 2-month school holiday. This is an integral part to our Social Entrepreneurship program as the Scholars learn how they can become social change agents.
Our Girls’ Academy for Conscious Change lasted 2 months and offered the following high-engagement support services in three phases:
- Incorporating conscious leadership and personal growth practice
- Mind-body trauma healing
- Social entrepreneurship and non-profit management skills
2. Two months of hands-on non-profit venture development facilitation
3. Seed grants for implementation
The results were inspiring as the Komera Scholars launched their own non-profit projects within their communities. Check out their teams and projects here!
The Komera Scholars will continue to work on their projects during their school breaks. We will continue to provide them with training and support as they learn how they can invest in their own community.
