Girl Got Faith is the teen girl's guide to a faith-filled life. We support young people to find confidence in who they were created to be.

by Emma Borquaye in London, England, United Kingdom

The Problem

The Princes Trust Youth Index 2019 highlighted that more than a quarter (36%) of young people do not feel in control of their lives, and 40% do not believe in themselves.

Many young people feel trapped by their situation and believe they do not have the ability to change their circumstances, even if they want to. This confidence crisis is preventing the next generation from realising their true potential.

Statistics show that overall happiness and confidence is lower for girls than boys, with 61% of young women in the UK today stating they have low self-esteem.

Why Girl Got Faith?

Girl Got Faith is a platform that supports 12-18 year old girls to find confidence in who they were created to be through articles, videos, daily inspiration on social media, self-esteem workshops in schools, and now with our first one-day event that we are crowdfunding for.

Although studies show that teens who attend church regularly have higher levels of happiness and a greater sense of purpose, being a teenager and a Christian has unique challenges of its own.

We address the every day issues that teen girls are facing from a faith perspective, and provide practical tools and guides for girls to grow in confidence and feel understood and supported. We believe that through this, we will begin to see a shift in the statistics and raise up fearless and faith-filled women that will influence and lead their generation.    

Who Are We?

Girl Got Faith was founded in 2015 by Emma Borquaye as a passion project, and has grown organically with no big funding or investment. The team is full of women and girls who want the best for the next generation and have given their hearts, skills and time to make that happen.

We are an innovative team who have achieved a lot, with little resource, but now is the time for us to do something that is beyond our current financial capability, and we want you to help us.

Why Are We Crowdfunding?

41% of young people feel more confident online than  they do in person, so we think it’s time to start bringing some of what is online, offline.

We are crowdfunding to put on our first event that will provide a significant opportunity for our audience to engage with us in a tangible way, meet like-minded individuals, and dream big for their futures. 

This will be a ticketed day-time event with capacity for around 150 attendees. There will be live music, workshops, guest speakers, a panel, goodie bags and plenty of prayer and encouragement. This will be the first of an annual Girl Got Faith day.

The money raised will be used to cover all event expenses including venue hire, food and refreshments, team expenses, speakers and special guests, and materials for workshops held on the day.

What Do The Girls Say?

Our online content already has a positive impact on thousands of girls every day.

Thank you for taking the time to read about this project, I'll leave you with a favourite quote of mine from the late, great, Kobe Bryant; "As you get older you start to understand it's really about the next generation...the most important thing you can do is pay everything that you learn forward to the next generation to come. And that's truly how you create something that lasts forever.”
