#HERStory

The call to action began in 2014 and was stemmed by founder, Toyin Ayedun-Alase’s personal childhood and adolescent experience, she felt there was a great need to contribute to the positive development of young women in her community of Hackney as she knew first-hand what it was like to need the support and encouragement to break out of seemingly negative cycles.

This went on to birth the #BETHEBESTME and #NxtSTEP confidence and career workshops created for the upcoming generation of young women (aged 13-19) that focused on promoting positive role models and providing practical support towards their education and employment needs and aspirations.

#BETHEBESTME continues to run through East London

Our mission for #SheBUILDS aims to connect the links between mothers and daughters by exploring the experiences, emotions and providing the tangible education that comes with ‘Future Planning’
