Project Butterfly: Caterpillar Training Guide
The problems associated with our youth today seem almost overwhelming. Things are not going to get any better unless we actively support them. Our girls need to understand who they are and how they can (regardless of their circumstances) be empowered. Project Butterfly is a workbook designed to offer that much needed support.
Project Butterfly is a reassuring must-read for every girl and every adult who supports or works with girls. While growing up in this society can be an unsettling experience, girls can feel confident if they have the necessary tools to empower them. With clarity and sensitivity, Niambi Jaha explores the physical, emotional and social aspects of growing up. In a supportive and practical voice, she provides answers to the questions girls have about their bodies and related topics, such as, "Why Is It Always About SEX?," "Finding My Posse," "Periods, Mood Swings and the Moon," "Connecting With My Life Purpose" and more. Ms. Jaha provides a touch of ancient wisdom, as she supports and encourages young women and girls through the changes and challenges of life using the life cycle of a butterfly as a wonderful model of transition.
