It is the GIRLS DECADE!! Whether California’s Lulu Cerone, Founder of LemonAID Warriors, whose nonprofit is activating the next generation of leaders one “ philanthroparty” at a time, or Kakenya Ntaiya who transformed her experience with female mutilation into becoming the first female in her Kenyan village to receive higher education in the United States and later founded the Kakenya Center for Excellence– a primary school for girls in her native village, or Malia Obama bringing such grace to the White House … OR our own wonderful young women from the Berkshires – Girls Inc. and the Boys and Girls Club’s “Smart Girls” — who have been empowering themselves to become the best women possible through the Berkshire HorseWorks’ Girls Rule! and Sister Sense! Equine Assisted Learning programs. Girls and women worldwide are planting their stakes in the ground with their own achievements and also laying the foundation for others to follow. The ability to make empowered choices, be confident , problem solve, embrace creativity and be part of the solution is fostered though our EAGALA personal development programs. Horses and Girls — a connection that runs so deep is now helping groom our next leaders. We can’t wait to help these strong and inspired women influence the course of the future. Go girls! And Happy New Year to everyone!!
