Join Dove and the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in Empowering girls through improving body confidence and self-esteem! There are Activity Packs for ages 7-10 and 11-14 NOW AVAILABLE!
GIRLS AGES 7-10:
In the 7-10 programme, Free Being Me introduces the idea that society promotes a narrow and unrealistic definition of beauty then helps participants to uncover the real story; they can choose to reject this idea because there is no such thing as one way everyone should look, and how people look is just one aspect of who they are. This empowers participants to challenge the idea that there is only one way to be beautiful, building their resilience and capacity to question and reject the limiting messages about beauty they will encounter growing up.
GIRLS AGES 11-14:

They’ll find out the downsides of trying to look like this ‘Image Myth’ – and discover that it’s actually impossible; even celebrities and models are airbrushed!
Participants are empowered to speak out and challenge the Image Myth in lots of different ways, boosting their body confidence and having fun...
