About Us

our social purpose

Who knew that being a girl would be so challenging in the 21st century?

We are told to be individual but not to stand out too much, we are told to be unique but then taught that to succeed we must conform to the status quo.

With academic pressures and today’s social media-crazed culture, society is creating a generation of girls from as young as 8 years old that lack confidence, have low aspirations, lack identity, are disengaging from school and have unrealistic notions of what they should look and behave like to be successful.

what makes us


BelEve works not only with girls, but also with their primary influencers – parents, teachers, local communities and other youth agencies to create sustainable impact.

Our programmes are designed to support and empower girls to fulfill their life and career prospects, working alongside schools and the community to inspire individual, educational and social change.
All our platforms are underpinned by mentoring to ensure support, guidance and sustainability.

We provide tools that build self-belief, self-love, self-confidence and address emotional, mental and physical well-being.

Our focus is on leadership. We want every girl to know there is a leader within her and that within her world, anything is possible.
