With the help of influential leaders and use of dynamic resources, we provide opportunities for young women to develop leadership skills necessary for building sustainable communities. Raising a Generation of Esthers Foundation conferences, seminars, talks and long distance video communication events enable successful leaders from diverse backgrounds and works of life, to participate in our process of transforming once under privileged women into people of national and global influence.
Join us next year, June 21-23 for a life-transforming weekend in Cameroon, Central Africa. The purpose of this conference is to empower young women with leadership tools and the resources needed for success in every area of their lives. Participants will have the opportunity to listen to influential women who are making a difference in their communities and the world.
During this conference, we will be hosting a community-wide baby shower for underprivileged pregnant girls. A number of women's ministries in local churches around the United States are partnering with us to sponsor this outreach.
This past June, eight women traveled from the United States for a life-transforming week in Cameroon. Our team served people from varied backgrounds and works of life. We hosted leadership development and business workshops for local church leaders and entrepreneurs.
Leading up to Beautiful You Conference, we hosted community outreaches that catered for the needs of incarcerated women (provided them with female hygiene products) at the Buea central prison and orphaned children (provided them with grocery supplies) at Grace Orphanage.
During Beautiful You Conference 2017, we hosted our first annual community-wide baby shower, serving teenage pregnant girls, single moms to be, and other married women in need of support. 21 families benefited from this baby shower, including a mentally-ill young woman who was impregnated as a result of a rape incident. One of the women delivered of her baby boy few hours after she was showered with gifts to prepare for his arrival.
At the core of our existence is the desire to empower, train and transform the lives of women. Ultimately to help them discover and fulfill purpose. Over 300 women participated at the 2017's conference and were impacted by the wealth of knowledge brought to them by our influential guest speakers. Next year's conference is about one year away and we would like to see you there.
