Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

As a team, we share a common vision of a platform that would provide facility for multi-purpose educational activities for young women. Our goal is to help women to reach their goals in becoming strong, successful, self-actualized and harmonious individuals. We plan to realize this through providing access to “Self-made program” for those women who demonstrate strong desire to change and develop.

Where will your idea take place?

Kyiv, Ukraine

Why does Europe need your idea?

Our greatest challenge is to educate women on reaching harmony and balance in all spheres of life.

What is your impact?

We would like to give the possibility to develop for more than 1000 women this year by holding forum in Kiev, lectures, education programs, and content on web, mentorship program, to create special place where girls can come and talk and to receive support.
We plan to hold three integrated programs of self-development, leadership and self-confidence for at least 50 women.

How do you get there?

We plan to realize our goals through series of events that include work-shops, lectures, forums etc. Our custom-designed program will enable participants to use most effective practices to realize their goals, ideas and visions. The program consists of three directions that focus on inner self, one’s environment and self-actualization. After completion of the program we will provide mentoral support to participants during one year in order to track their results and provide guidance in achieving their goals.

What is your story?


Who are you doing it for?

We aim to do this for women and young girls who want to change their lives for better, who seek for personal growth and self-development. We created this project for women ages 22 to 35, as well as the audience of young girls (15+), who want to receive mentoring and training support from successful women entrepreneurs, who lecture in the program of our Foundation.

What makes your idea stand apart?

We believe that the change triggered by our project will have significant positive effect on the society in general. Our complex approach (personal, social, inner self) will enable our participants to establish leadership skills to change environment around for better.
