Girls Emerging on a Mission to Success (G.E.M.S.) is an After School Girls Program through Retouch International Ministries (RIM), a 501(C) 3 Not-for-Profit Organization. Through core life skills, GEMS teaches its participants of "undiscovered" (overlooked/ at risk of underachievement) to discover and utilize the gems they already possess in order to live a meaningful and productive life. 

"The Girls That Could"... Create, Serve, Overcome, Climb, Do anything, is a movement established by RIM to encourage all girls to focus on their ability to make a powerful impact in their communities by creating change or opportunities for the betterment of their communities, learning to live a life committed to service, overcoming hurdles and personal challenges, climbing their journey of life by learning to navigate using various resources and positive support system and with much determination, diligence, resilience, support, etc. They can accomplish anything.  

Through The Girls That Could...CREATE, campaign, GEMS participants and supporting artists, created and donated paintings, photography, and jewelry that were auctioned off. All proceeds of auctioned art go directly towards program costs.

Joining "The Girls That Could..." movement will allow RIM to continue making a positive and lasting impact in the lives of girls who may be at risk of underachievement. Additionally, joining this movement will allow GEMS to be expanded to other middle schools in the DMV area.  Proceeds received will go towards community and out of State field trips, securing partnerships with tutoring centers for one on one tutoring for students in need, expansion of health and wellness program to teach participants how to make healthy choices in food and exercise, supporting families in need, etc.
