The empowerment workshop was created with the idea that we get not just girls, but boys as well to appreciate themselves. During the workshop we had students create their own definition of what empowerment meant to them and then blended in the idea of women empowerment. We later split the boys and girls into separate activities. The girls were assigned to make collages out of magazines about how they viewed themselves. The boys had to do two tasks which included writing a letter to an anonymous girl in the hope that he will empower her and to create a poem out of old news papers that reflected how they viewed themselves. This workshop was full of creativity and a great learning experience for everyone. Overall it was a huge success in all four of the classrooms that we visited.
