Party Room at Winton Place, 12700 Lake Avenue, Lakewood, Ohio, 44107
Tickets: $35

GIRLS FOR THE WORLD encourages girls and their mothers to join in circle just as they are — ready or not, educated or not, broken or not, strong or not—to do the work of self-awareness and mutual support through which our minds, voices, bodies, imaginations and actions become potent and strong. The power of “Hineni” is saying “Here I Am” to ourselves and one another.

Please join us for a cultural afternoon of international tastes, music, and artwork—plus compelling stories at 2 pm from GIRLS FOR THE WORLD facilitators and participants:


  from Ounaminthe, Haiti. Evelyne has been a participant, translator and facilitator of GIRLS FOR THE WORLD programs.



  a student at St. Martin de Porres High School, in Cleveland, Ohio. Tereiza arrived as a refugee from Egypt and has been a participant in GIRLS FOR THE WORLD programs.



  Founder and Executive Director of GIRLS FOR THE WORLD.

Tickets available now until May 19, 2019.
