According to Kingsley Bangwell of Youngstars foundation, Self esteem is crucial to womanity, women development and gender equality. Women and girls cannot achieve success unless they believe in themselves beyond the society’s patriarchal norms and conventional roles. Many young females including those with disability have benefited from this self esteem boosting project.
