Every girl has a dream. The S.H.A.U.N. Foundation for Girls was created to help girls and young women have access to opportunities that they need to succeed in life. We believe that we can help reduce the inequities that girls face by focusing on solutions that break down barriers. Once those obstacles are reduced, she can set forth a path of endless possibilities.

Our girls need support. Even though we have made tremendous strides in the empowerment of females in our  society, there is still a lot of work to do. Girls still lag behind in the science, technology, engineering and math fields. Countless girls need to make better lifestyle choices to endure long-term health. Young women are bombarded with unrealistic images in the media that negatively affect them and fight barriers to artistic expression that could create positive and uplifting content. Their sisters across the globe face horrific conditions including child marriage and lack of access to education. And, back here at home, lack of opportunities in underserved neighborhoods leads to an endless cycle of poverty and despair.

We know we can’t solve all of the world’s problems facing girls and young women. But, we are eternally optimistic that we can change the paradigm for many and set them on a path to a brighter future.
