SHEROES Gobal, founded in 2012, is a development and support organisation on a mission to empower women & youth to become positive change agents through changing orientation and building positive mind-set, as we inspire them to be more, recognize their efforts, celebrate their successes, equip them to build sustainable businesses, impact their communities positively and be supportive of one another in line with the UN sustainable development goals 2030.
We solve the problem of inadequate attention/importance given to the needs of women and young people, to be self-confident, self-reliant, to develop self-esteem and have a clear sense of direction in life in these countries. We do this by delivering positive impact projects that inspire and empower women and young people to be more, have a positive re-orientation, build positive mind-set and be equipped to become self-reliant & supportive of one another.
We are currently actively present in: Ireland, Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, South Africa. Our Malawi chapter will be launched in September ’19.
