KNOW (Knowledge Network, Opportunity for Women) is an organization that empowers young women to pursue their dreams through a one to one mentorship program.
We do this by providing the right environment, role-models and supporting
resources to promising young women.
We are creating an online platform for communication with women internationally, a supportive mentor locally.
We will have video chat, direct messaging, chartrooms, and cell phone technology as well as projects that will inspire the girls to work together from every part of the globe on a project that helps their local community and the the world be a brighter place.
We will use technology to interact with the girls, set them up with a mentor that is always accessible within 12 hours through any form of communication and who hopefully will become their mentor for life.
The mentors are high profile women in the technological, science, and mathematics communities who are donating their time to help inspire and support a girl as best as she can.
It is like a PinPal + Big Sister + Vision
Values: Education, independence, advancement, and employment
