Here's a testimony of a Girls Inc. parent in 2017,
"My daughter used to be shy to read in front of others and had difficulty understanding what she read. Girls Inc. has helped my daugther strenghten her reading and comprehension skills. She is now reading to her younger sisters and is more confident. We are thankful to Girls Inc. for all that they do."
