Pearls4Girls (P4G) is a Help Lesotho initiative that raises funds and awareness for gender equity and girls’ leadership programs.
Since its inception in 2006, Pearls4Girls has raised over 3/4 of a million dollars. With thousands of volunteers, party hosts, Pearl Bee participants and shoppers, the impact of Pearls4Girls is exciting and far-reaching. Hundreds of girls in Lesotho have had the opportunity to participate in Help Lesotho’s leadership camps, gender equity conferences and weekly village programs. These girls learn that they are not alone – that they are someone who matters – that they can make a difference. Each girl who participates in Help Lesotho’s leadership programs is supported to become an agent of change, thereby multiplying the positive impact of this program to hundreds of families, thousands of peers and countless communities.
