I want to share here with you about my social enterprise newHorizons and I would be very grateful to get your feedback about my developing website. :)
First I want to start with the problem I am trying to solve. The problem is in the rural areas of Azerbaijan school girls drop out is still a serious problem. Girls quite school from 8 and 9th grades for different reasons: lack of family support, financial, difficulties, lack of logistic and resources and etc. After this most of the time they stay home and forcing to do early marriage. My solution for this problem is newHorizons. It is a schoolgirl empowerment program.
At newHorizons we are inspiring schoolgirls from rural areas of Azerbaijan to continue their education and to develop English language skills. We do it by introducing them online courses and off line workshops about topics such as self-development, global mindset, girl leadership, language learning.
Recently I am working on my pilot and this year summer I will test it one village school of Azerbaijan.
In the following posts I will also share with you about my preparations for the pilot.
