Girls Teaching Girls is a group aimed at teaching elementary school girls leadership skills and empowerment. We will do this by planning lessons which focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), nutrition and body awareness, art, and outdoor education. Every lesson will be taught with the aim of empowering and teaching the girls that they can do anything they put their minds to.

Our project uses handkerchiefs as a unique tool to tell the world about the critical issue of deforestation. We use our project to communicate widely, but also to raise money for grassroots organizations (mostly indigenous) that are on the ground in places where forests (especially peat land forests) and the creatures that live in them are threatened. We raise money by partnering with local businesses that advertise on tourist maps we print on handkerchiefs. We also raise money through the sale of these handkerchiefs.

We will write a proposal to the Administration Office to ask them to stop supplying bottled water during various school events (such as Open House) as well as faculty/staff meetings. We will also persuade the club that is selling snacks and drinks on campus to not sell drinks that come in single-use plastic bottles. Meanwhile, aiming to increase the water dispensers/stations on campus to make it more convenient for people to use recycled water bottles, we will research about the best locations on campus to add more water dispensers and the best brands for them.
