    The intention and vision behind this project is deeply rooted in the history of women gathering with the moon, working with their hands, and supporting one another through all of life’s possibilities. It is our dream to create a safe space for girls to gather, share and connect to the universal women in them all. We wish to provide the tools to overcome bullying, social stigmas, cliques, puberty, crushes, family dramas and building their identities.

    We will be bringing in women from our community to teach different skills and to show the girls that there are different options for them, to perhaps awaken something in them that they may not have otherwise known was there and to expose them to all kinds of opportunities and interests for their lives as women. We hope to introduce the girls to various skills and crafts in order to share with the girls as they grow up that there are infinite ways to be a girl and a woman. Our hope is to provide the girls with fun, and empowering skills, which they can take into their lives, helping them to see that they can create anything on their own!
