Welcome to MO'GIRLS GLOBAL!
Mo’ Girls Global programs are a fun, engaging, play-based and comprehensive introduction to the entrepreneurial spirit for girls 8-16.
A concept several years in the making, Mo’Girls Global launched its first Mo’ Girls Empowerment & Entrepreneurship Camp and workshop for girls, against all odds in July 2017. The feedback was immense. We knew we were onto something. The 2018 iteration of the pilot programme served 50 girls through three  one-week pilots over the July/ August school holidays in the communities of Port of Spain, San Fernando, and Arima.
For 2019, we are continuing our one-week pilot programmes in San Fernando and East Trinidad. Expanding our Port of Spain Programme into a full two-week experience and doing our very first one-week pilot in Chaguanas (Central Trinidad). This year we are also launching our one-day post-camp national conference where Mo’ Girls Moguls, facilitators, and Superwomen will have an opportunity to showcase their businesses, network and attend workshops that expand on the work that is done at camp.

A note from the "MAMs"
Mo'Girls to the World!
Hi, we’re Melissa A. Matthews and Michele A. Matthews-Morancie a.k.a The MAMs!
Just over two years ago (perhaps, closer to three), an empowerment and entrepreneurship program for girls—one that touched all of the places that informed our journey as women entrepreneurs and paid forward the guidance, mentorship, life lessons, love and support we received along the way—was just an idea in our company “parking lot.” As the days turned into weeks and the weeks into months and the months into years since we first conceived it, we would work on different aspects of the program when our schedules allowed, revisit them, tweak them, discuss the project again and refine our vision. This process of incubation took almost three years and then we decided that we were ready to test the program and the world (particularly the places we wished to launch it) were ready to receive it. So, our vision for and expectations of what we launched as the Mo’ Girls Empowerment & Entrepreneurship Pilot Programme are both well thought-out and meaningful to us and our team. Now that we’ve tested and proven the concept of Mo’ Girls in two hubs in Trinidad, the way forward and intended impact of Mo’ Girls is becoming clearer and clearer.
The Mo’ Girls Global team is made up of experienced women entrepreneurs, trainers and facilitators who are not only passionate about what they do, but who they serve. They are dedicated to exposing our Mini, Midi and Major Moguls to opportunities and information they did not have when they were growing up.

IT TAKES A VILLAGE: A NOD TO OUR PARTNERS
The MAM Squared/ Agitate Academy team had the vision for the Mo’ Girls Empowerment and Entrepreneurship Programme, but vision and will would not be enough to make such a lofty goal a reality.

SHOW LOVE: IT’S THE MO’ GIRLS WAY
You’re not smart enough. You’re not savvy enough. You’re too fat. You’re too skinny. You’re just a pretty face. You’re not pretty enough. You’re too loud. You’re too timid. You’re too tall.
