Loving Me

 

In March 2011, Phenomenal Women’s Health Inc. expanded its organizational reach. As PWH staff and volunteers interacted with homeless women in shelters, they realized how a deep-rooted lack of self-esteem, which started in childhood, may have impacted the women’s lives. Through its “Loving Me Phenomenally “program component, the organization developed and began implementing programs for girls, ages 11- 15 years, through a variety of activities designed to provide opportunities for them to learn about and embrace healthier lifestyles as they grow into womanhood. Phenomenal Women’s Health Inc. began to offer classes in etiquette, healthy relationships, health and wellness, finances, body image, dressing for success, and self-esteem at Fayette County Public Library on Saturdays, beginning March 5 through April 23, 2011. Even a book club for the girls was started! On Saturday, April 2, 2011 PWH sponsored a Zumba Fitness class for the girls in the Belk parking lot at Fayette Pavilion in Fayetteville, Georgia.

In 2012 we have a New Initiative for Loving Me called “I DEMAND RESPECT - LOVING ME”. With this initiative we want teens to demand and give respect to one another. By respecting themselves, bullying and teen date violence can be eradicated. Purple arm bands with the slogan I DEMAND RESPECT - LOVING ME will be distributed as a constant reminder about loving one’s self!
