I Feel Pretty

“I feel pretty, Oh so pretty, I feel pretty and witty and bright
And I pity, any girl who isn’t me tonight.” ~ lyrics from West Side Story

A vital part of caring for the girls here at Project Eden is to foster a positive sense of self-worth.  While education is paramount in securing a better future for a child; we must also create environments that boost a child’s perception of their self-worth and beauty.Poverty extends into every aspect of a person’s life and it wreaks havoc on a person’s perception of themselves and often prevents them from being able to succeed in the future, even after the element of poverty has been removed from their life.

The team at Project Eden knows this very well and they continually build into their curriculum occasions to lift the girls self-image and confidence by teaching them the art of conversation, excursions, and activities. A few weeks ago, the staff decided to have a fashion show. They instructed the girls to select an outfit that they want to wear at the fashion show and they could choose to wear something pretty, silly or even dress up like someone they know. The girls really loved the idea and it was a big hit. Even the shyest of the group displayed confidence and silliness during the show. It is a privilege to get to walk through life with these young women and see them mature week by week.  And most of all; the girls were able to see themselves in another light and feel “pretty and witty and bright”.
