Girls Helping Girls was founded in 2007 by Sejal Hathi when she was only 15 years old. She currently serves on the Youth Service America’s National Board of Directors and the National Youth Council with YSA. She founded the organization in response to the poverty and oppression experienced by many women worldwide.
The new website, designed by LevelTen Interactive, is built using the innovative open-source content management system, Drupal. Because the primary users of the site are girls between the ages of 12 and 17, a particular emphasis was placed on security and privacy. Users will be able create custom profiles, control privacy and display settings, and flag comments or users who are inappropriate.
Kayla Wren, Interactive Production Manager at LevelTen, greatly enjoyed her experience with Girls Helping Girls, “LevelTen was honored to develop a site that would support the mission of Girls Helping Girls. All who worked on the project were inspired and touched by the great work they’re doing.”
