WHO WE ARE

The EssBee Foundation is a non-profit founded by Shenai Bridglall in June 2016 to reduce the gender inequality gap by advancing girls/ women's economic empowerment.

WHAT WE DO

We provide our beneficiaries with access to quality education and career/ business guidance and mentorship via development, training and support programs, hence helping them become financially independent.

 

"Our goal at The EssBee Foundation is for girls and women to become somebodies instead of somebody's." ~ Shenai Bridglall
