Raising Awareness

One of SHARE's core missions is to create a higher level of awareness for girls' education in Sub-Saharan Africa. Since 2008, SHARE volunteers have also helped increase visibility by speaking at conventions, conferences, youth gatherings, schools, churches, scout meetings, and civic organizations across the country.

SHARE’s founder has made over 100 presentations, and numerous radio and television interviews, spreading awareness about SHARE’s mission to educate girls. Shannon has been an invited guest speaker in Tanzania, Ireland, and the United States, including the White House and the United Nations.


We welcome the opportunity to speak to your organization. Please email us.
