5 Ways to Better Support Girls According to World Vision Ambassador Joyce Pring-Triviño
When Joyce Pring-Triviño, a podcast host and TV personality, proudly became a child sponsor with World Vision, she witnessed first-hand how a single act of generosity could positively impact the lives of children, especially young girls, across the country. With as little as Php 25 a day or Php 750 a month, sponsors can empower children and provide them with the support needed to thrive in their communities.
Joyce, a talented multi-hyphenate and advocate, understands that women have long faced unique challenges, from gender inequality to limited access to education and opportunities. However, she believes that when we provide them with the necessary tools and support, we unleash their incredible potential. According to Joyce, “By empowering women, we’re not only creating a more inclusive world, but we’re also driving economic growth, social progress, and innovation.”
Here, she shares the practical ways that she, and now you, can effectively empower young girls and women:
- Be a role model. Lead by example and demonstrate to the young women in your life what’s possible. Share your personal journey, including your successes and challenges. Let them see that they too can pursue their dreams.
- Create a safe space. Foster an environment where open communication, trust, and support are encouraged. Be a listening ear for the young women in your life and offer guidance when needed.
- Encourage education and skill-building. Emphasize the importance of education and skills development. Encourage girls to explore their interests, pursue higher education, and develop skills aligned with their passions.
- Support child-focused organizations. Donate to and volunteer at organizations like World Vision, which provide education, mentorship, and resources to empower young women. Your contribution can make a meaningful impact. You can also get involved as a mentor or help connect the young women in your life with mentors who can guide and inspire them.
- Be an ally and advocate. Use your voice to raise awareness about the significance of empowering young girls and women. Share their stories, highlight the importance of mentorship, and advocate for equal opportunities.
“As a new parent, I understand the significance of providing a nurturing environment where my own little baby girl can grow up feeling empowered, confident, and capable of achieving anything she sets her mind to,” says Joyce. So, she is committed to ensuring that not only her daughter but every child receives opportunities to thrive.
“One of the most remarkable aspects of empowering young girls is the ripple effect it has on future generations and the broader community. When we invest in their education, health, and well-being, we’re planting the seeds for a brighter future. Empowered girls become empowered women who, in turn, empower others,” she ends.
Through education, mentorship, and support, World Vision is breaking down barriers and changing the lives of many vulnerable children, especially girls. Visit www.worldvision.org.ph for more information.
