Girl Up Steminists of Littleton
Littleton Robotics launched our Girl Up club, The Girl Up Steminists of Littleton, in June 2019. Girl Up is a United Nations organization, and the mission of the program is described below:
“No matter their background, girls have the power to transform themselves, their communities, and the world around them. Girl Up is a global movement of empowered young women leaders who defend gender equality. Through leadership development training, Girl Up gives girls the resources and platform to start a movement for social change wherever they are. For those who stand with us in this movement, there is no rest until we achieve equal rights for every girl. Because when girls rise, we all rise. Girl Up was founded by the United Nations Foundation in 2010, and continues to work across a global community of partners to achieve gender equality worldwide.“
The Girl Up Steminists of Littleton are comprised of students in grades 4-12 from Littleton and the surrounding towns. In 2019-2020, we raised $1,000 to build a new classroom for refugee girls in Uganda, as a part of the Give Her a Future Challenge. We just started meeting again to decide on our next project. If you are interested in getting involved, or starting your own Girl Up club, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
