Individuals applying business entrepreneurial skills, experiences and training to combat social problems and challenges limiting their vision and ability to achieve greatness.
The I C HOPE Makin a Nu Reality Foundation exists to educate, train, invest in and nourish the growth of our girls as SocialPreneures™ to break the downward cycle experience of multicultural girls of color (primarily African American, Latina American and Asian American) coping with the negative impact of low self- esteem, poor self-image and self-acceptance , underdevelopment of anger management skills, eating disorders, childhood obesity and limited access to affirmative role models and affirming career opportunities in media, advertising, law, and the entertainment industry.
We utilize experiential learning, new technology, new media channels and entertainment platforms to educate at-risk girls ages 8-18 to develop self help skills to aid in leading themselves to healthy recoveries, interventions and sustainable core value systems that strengthen their ability to mature into healthy citizens and contribute to healthy communities. It is not a passive experience, but an aggressive personal development plan that translates to sustainable products and revenue streams by and for the well-being of the participants.
“… it's up to us to carry that work forward, to ensure that our daughters and granddaughters have no limits on their dreams, no obstacles to their achievements -- and that they have opportunities their mothers and grandmothers and great grandmothers never dreamed of. ”
