SKY is a sistahood of teen girls from across Ghana. We are all about being true to ourselves and what we believe in. We are who we are, not who someone else thinks we should be. So when it comes to how we are with our friends, or what music we listen to, or what we wear, or how we look – we make choices that are true to us. After all we know what we like. And what we don’t like. Like the choice to stand up for our friends, when they need us to. And the choice not to smoke. We change our minds sometimes – that’s OK :) So long as we stay true to what we believe in. We follow our skyline. We are SKY. To become a SKY Girl, first you need to take the SKY Pledge to stay true to yourself – send us a message on our Facebook page!
I pledge to be true to myself
and what I believe in.
To be who I am, not who someone else
thinks I should be.
I'll hold tight to the things I'm
all about - like friends, and dancing
and I'll stay away from yawa things
I know I'm good without - like
backstabbing, and smoking.
Because knowing what's my thing and what's
not my thing helps make me who I am.
I will make choices that are true to me.
I pledge to find my sky.
SKY aims to support girls as they strive to be true to themselves. It aims to help them make choices about things that matter to them and stay true to them. SKY hopes that one of these choices is the choice not to smoke, because girls have told SKY this is a choice they want to make and it can be difficult to stick to.
SKY is brought to the girls by a group of people and organisations who believe in them and their future.
