Launching Mentoring Circles
"Every great achiever is inspired by a great mentor" - Lailah Gifty Akita
Our mission at Grace is to empower girls to live an informed and wholesome life. Weekly mentoring circles have been initiated at GGH to help the girls broaden their perspective and nourish them with meaningful coaching and mentoring. Each week, different topics are discussed via virtual meetings and delivered age appropriately. This initiative is being led by Para Ahilan, Kalaichelvi Paramanathan and Abida Taher. If you want to get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Digitization sponsored by LC class of 1990
In commemoration of their golden jubilee year, the Ladies College Class of 1990, have pledged to raise $6500 for the rebrand and digitization of Grace Girls' Home. The goal of this fundraiser is to modernize Grace Girls' Home's online and media presence with professional identity, so we can open the door to deeper connections with our advocates. With this approach we seek to expand the quality and reach of our services. You may follow the link below to support this cause.

What is your favorite Grace Memory?
"When I first went to Grace 6 years ago I met one of the girls. Since then she has worked with me on many projects and coordinated Skype sessions between my class and the younger Grace girls. Last year I was able to go back and see her as a new mother. It’s been a privilege to watch her learn and grow all these years, and full circle moment to see her as a mom."
