#EveryWomanCan

On Saturday, March 26, 2016, the 11th Annual Women’s History Month event created, produced and hosted by Rosie Peppy Parke was held at Sweet Home Jamaica in Brooklyn, MD.  The theme, #EveryWomanCan was inspired by Ms. Parke’s 2015 mission trip to Ghana, West Africa where she became the first facilitator to take the Every Girl Can Program (www.everygirlcan.org), developed by Yasmin Anderson-Smith to the continent.  While in Ghana, Ms. Parke worked with the Akoma International Academy School and coached 10 young ladies aged 12-16 on the program which focuses on the principle of E4 + I (Enrich, Empower, Elevate, Empower + Inspire) = Every Girl Can.  In addition, she trained 3 interns who are now able to deliver the program to other young ladies in Ghana (even in her absence).

Her goal is to share the program with at least 100 Ghanaians girls by 2020 and work with the developer of the program and other schools in Ghana to stage an Annual Conference there.  For the past 5 years, Ms. Parke has been fundraising to sponsor students who attend Akoma International Academy in Ghana through her Annual Women’s History Month and Birthday Fundraisers.  To date, she has sponsored over 20 children, and donated tons of school supplies to various schools in Ghana with the help of her supporters.  She typically visits Ghana annual around October withwww.africafortheafricans.org.
