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 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
We facilitate tertiary institution visits, provide career guidance and fund tertiary education for girls. Our goal is to provide guidance during the transformation from school to university, hence reducing the chance of university drop out.
We run an accelerator program where we connect female founders, help them start a company, provide them with mentorship and startup capital and help them become investment ready.
