Girls EnPower

The young women of Girls EnPower. (Girls EnPowerorporated of Durham) are inspired to be smart, strong and bold. Through after school and camp programs, the non-profit organization works with young women (between the ages of 6-18) in areas of, self-esteem, education, resiliency, empowerment and health. Partnered with Durham Colleges Centre For Food, a sustainable field to fork design was established, Enactus DC developed a road map that in just under two years, will see the women of Girls EnPower. embodying the required skills that will allow them to design their own unique food product through recipe creation, farming and product development training. The women will also be guided through business model training that will see the young women developing, marketing, packaging and selling their food product. Proceeds from the sale of the product will be re-invested into the non for-profit program. Not only will Enactus DC work to facilitate and design the training to empower the young women, but we will work to shape the role models in the areas of entrepreneurship, farming and product development.
