Betterness Manifesto CIC was founded in May 2020 in Hastings, East Sussex. Our initial idea was to offer girls and young women from the most socio-economically challenged regions of the UK a comprehensive emotional resilience and female empowerment workshop using a range of evidence-based positive psychology interventions. We wanted to go into schools and offer the Betterness Manifesto workshop free to as many girls as humanly possible. We believe in girls' innate potential for greatness. We also know how vulnerable young women can be and how skewed their outlook often is - in a world that is far from gender parity.
From there we started working on a local offer, in schools in Hastings and St Leonards. Then we realized there were many teachers delivering Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education who also wanted support to address a number of issues that affect girls and young women.
After months of research, we have now decided to focus on the Betterness Manifesto online program, alongside a series of very intimate and local initiatives in our home town of Hastings.
We are busy preparing our introductory slide deck and several applications to large national trusts and foundations with a view to seeking substantial funding for our project.
If you are an angel investor, funder, philanthropist, and gender equality advocate and you would like to know more about our work, please do not hesitate to contact our Founder at firstname.lastname@example.org
