You don’t have to be in Women’s Month or celebrating Women’s Day to continue the work toempower our girls. For Shelly-Ann Weeks, Founder and Executive Director of HerFlow Foundation, it’s year-round. She was at Excelsior High School in Kingston recently, with the support of a U.S.-based NGO with Jamaican roots, the GrassROOTS Community Foundation, for the third Invest in Girls Summit.
