StrongHER TogetHER - Durham Girls Book Club

With the COVID-19 pandemic and recent school closures, Durham girls are stuck at home...isolated, often bored and in search of some positive, fun outlets.  StrongHER TogetHER is a nonprofit that believes connected girls are stronger girls. So we’re excited to announce...

Reading books. Staying home. Going places. TogetHER

Our Book Club will bring together 500 girls in grades 5-8 from 25 schools across Durham.  In June, July and August, we'll be reading, then discussing a book per month over Instagram.  Each book will feature  a strong female character who inspires us!  The Durham Girls Book Club will be a safe space for girls to connect, learn together and form positive friendships with peers throughout Durham.

In June, we’ll begin distributing books and informational flyers to interested girls at our partner schools and associated food distribution sites across Durham. Our aim is to enable participation from girls throughout our community who love the notion of reading a book alongside other girls their age and sharing that experience... regardless of background, resources or zip code.

But we need YOUR help to make this happen! Our aim is to provide enough books (used, discounted, etc.) for 500 girls.  That means we’ll need to raise $3,000!  Please share our campaign with your networks on today’s #GivingTuesdayNow!!  And help us embrace a silver lining of this moment we're connecting Durham girls through the power of books!
