Girls Republic is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Washington, DC with the primary focus of tutoring, mentoring, advising and nurturing disadvantaged girls ages 12-18; especially those of African American/Black and Latina/Hispanic descent in the United States. There are more than 31 million adolescent girls around the globe who are currently not in school. We are planning to infiltrate public and charter schools with a strong presence of after-school programs and take an interfaith approach to community outreach while building relationships with the families of adolescent girls in their local places of worship and/or community centers. Girls Republic is planning an annual exposition including workshops and round table discussions on the topics of education, health, international trade and entrepreneurship.
Girls Republic sponsors medical mission trips in countries abroad, presently operating a project in Ethiopia and looking to expand in India. Utilizing our executive director's experience in marketing, Girls Republic has an apparel line with the purpose of educating and empowering disadvantaged adolescent girls.
