2007-2009 GRANT FOCUS
SELF-IMAGE GRANT FOR WOMEN AND GIRLS

A positive self-image plays a central role in a woman's ability to lead a full and meaningful life. Self-confidence and self-care are essential in every effort a woman undertakes, from leading her own business to raising a family. By understanding how to care for our bodies and ourselves, we create a better life, a happier future and a healthy self-image.
