The TGIF Thank God I’m Female! Campaign is a public education effort organised by the YWCA in the month of July to raise public awareness of the prevalent issues faced by young women between 13 – 35 years old through information and resources. Some of these issues include relationships, mental health, conflict management and body changes.
The Campaign also aims to help young women overcome the demands of life’s challenges by equipping them with essential life skills and knowledge and also promoting their safety and physical well-being.
Two by-products of the Campaign are:
Chic, a limited edition notebook publication for young women between 13 – 18 years old, which contains educational facts and information relevant to young women
YWCA Safety Alert, an iPhone App, which is designed to enhance the safety of young women at any time and anywhere. The App is now available in the Apple App Store for free! Download it now!
Public outreach activities in the month of July include a series of workshops conducted for the residents of AG Home, a home for at-risk teenage girls who are either juvenile delinquents beyond parental control or are victims of sexual and/or physical abuse; and Singapore Children’s Society – Sunbeam Place, a home for abused and neglected children in need of safety and protection or whose parents are unable to provide proper care for them. Through these workshops, we hope to empower them with skills and knowledge.
