Beauty Within Mauritius: Our first CO-ED workshop
This deserves a bit of a disclaimer: Beauty Within has administered Co-Ed programs before. In Veruela, Beauty Within hosts an annual co-ed literacy workshop. However, never before has Beauty Within attempted to discuss healthy goal setting, body image and self respect with boys in the room! This new factor of course diversified the challenges that were facing Trishna and Myisha as well as the challenges that faced our students as they worked to get the most out of their 2 week long workshop. We learned that the Beauty Within curriculum, while definitely designed to educate, empower, and engage young women can also be adapted to include young men quite easily. Self love and the respect of others knows no gender-binaries or limitations.
Beauty Within expands to Mauritius, June 2017
The Beauty Within team is happy to announce our expansion to Mauritius in June of 2017. We have been hard at work laying down the foundation of an incredible 2 week long workshop led by Beauty Within Mauritius Director, Trishna Craig. Trishna along with the Mauritius team will be taking on 80 girls ages 11 to 13. Stay tuned for more details on how to stay involved or how to help make Beauty Within's first foray into Africa a success.
