The Growing Girls project aims to empower young girls from Baltimore by helping them understand their body and the changes that come with puberty, using innovative educational tools. We focussed on creating interactive and accessible tools that were equally as fun as they are educational and would lay the foundation for a lifetime of sexual and reproductive health.
There are two main components to the project, an activity book that gives the girls the know-how to survive puberty without freaking out, and a mirror that teaches them about their bodies by showing them where to look.
