RESPECT PROJECT INC.
The Respect Project Inc. grew out of Respect: A Musical Journey and a desire to help women and girls. The Respect Project Inc. is a not-for-profit whose mission is: To help women and teenage girls transform their lives through smart thinking, smart choices, smart results. By utilizing the arts, theater and workshops, our goal is to uplift and empower women to choose more positive outcomes. We will work with women to gain self-respect, to understand the implication of their choices, to raise consciousness on what message they give to the world through their demeanor and to be more independent and inter-dependent wives, partners, mothers friends, and members of the community. Our motto for them is: Respect yourself, inspire others and make a difference.
