Globally, black girls disproportionately face social conditions like teen pregnancy, gender-based violence (GBV) & HIV; and disadvantages based on location, race, ethnicity and socioeconomic status impede them from transforming their lives.

Both being born and raised in blighted communities in Baltimore, we understand the difference that exposure and opportunity make. We believe that when girls are properly guided and inspired, they can become the women they are destined to be because they are the girls that we used to be. 

In the inaugural year, sponsors and donors believed in our vision and their generosity enabled us to create Black Girls Global Exchange (BGGE), a revolutionary peer learning and cross-cultural exchange for American and African girls to tackle global issues through arts and service which included an exchange week. 

The life-changing BGGE exchange week was full of many firsts for middle and high school girls who reside in Baltimore. For some, this was their first time flying, let alone traveling internationally. Many had never ventured outside of their communities, and what we were most proud of is that they had the opportunity to visit and serve in two countries in Africa! 

We are committed to carrying out our second BGGE Exchange Week in Johannesburg and Eswatini, April 2 - April 11, 2020, with our 11 dynamic Cohort 2 BGGE ambassadors.  By investing in the girls today through cross-cultural experiences in places where they  are confronted with undistorted truths, we create future leaders for tomorrow. But, we cannot do it without your help! The world needs smart, conscientious young people who are willing to dream big. No donation is too big or too small!  Thank you in advance for supporting world changers! 

Yours in BGGE,

Dawnita and Regina
