Pamela Hudson prepares presentation board on HIV AIDS with literature from local agencies.

Charlene Green (President, Detroit Chapter of Woman’s Life) is very concerned about the health of our youth. She is an advocate for awareness, education, and prevention. Mother of a teenage daughter she is helping girls learn about abstinence and get the facts on AIDS. Here is what she knows—33.2 million people now live with HIV or AIDS; In 2007 approximately 2.5 million people were infected with HIV; 5700 people die from AIDS every day; One child dies every minute; Every fifteen seconds, another person age 15-24 becomes infected with HIV/AIDS;15 million children around the world have been orphaned by AIDS, losing one or both par-

ents to the disease. The Detroit Chapter provided scholarships for girls to attend this years conference and be exposed to valuable life saving HIV-AIDS information. More than any other racial group in the United States, Blacks account for more new AIDS cases, HIV infections, people estimated to be living with HIV disease, and HIV related deaths. Even though Blacks make up 13% of the US population, we account for about half (49%) of the people who get HIV and AIDS. Blacks don't live as long as people of other races and ethnic groups with AIDS, due to a multiple level of barriers (i.e. poverty, stigma, health care, etc.).

Fellowship—Fitness—Fun—Fellowship—Fitness—Fun Global Projects is pleased to join with our First Lady, Michelle Obama on her health and wellness initiative, “Let’s Move.” We at GPH3 agree that this needs to be a long-term commitment to our children's health. In the words of Michelle, "It will take a concerted effort among all of us -- the whole nation -- to create healthier communities for our children. We must take on this challenge." The number of overweight children ages 6 to 19 has tripled since 1970 (2007 NE Journal of Med). "About one-third of our children are overweight or obese. None of us want that for our country," she said. "It's time to get moving." During a Nightline interview, Obama concluded her statements quoting President Roosevelt. "We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future." Health and Fitness is a key component of our 7 Point Curriculum at GPH3 for “Girls with Great Potential.”


THE VISION—See it, Write it, Live it. The Young Girl’s Conference was held on March 26—27th, 2010 and was a massive success. Forty-five girls attended the conference where they participated in a number of activities that included fun experiences like swimming, and workshops that taught them important life skills. Thirteen of the girls were from the Phoenix Learning Center and travelled from Cincinnati, Ohio with school Superintendent, Dr. Glenda D. Brown. Workshop leaders included were: Missionary Carolyn John-

son, who examined the traits found in young women of character during her presentation on “A Vision of Excellent Leadership.” Minister Ruby Martin, with a lesson on the “Vision Board” helped the girls to see the many possibilities in their futures. Sister Ella Green presented on “Writing the Vision and Making it Plain.” Her session included instruction in expository writing, power tips and a five point outline of the writing process from concept to publishing.

Girls were given an opportunity to practice “Reporting the Vision.” as the day concluded with Missionary Pam Hudson and Dr. Sabrina D. Black giving instruction and coaching the girls in living and walking with their vision for themselves and the world. The Young Girl’s conference would not have been possible without the prayers and support of many including the NPC, Mother Adell B. Dickinson, President, Sister Teanna Jewell, Conference Director, parents, teachers, attendees and the corporate sponsorship of Global Projects. Pictures top left, Minister Ruby Martin, with a “Vision Board.” The girls are solidifying their thoughts with pictures and giving them structure, as they put their visions on paper. Over 150 magazines were donated by Abundant Life Counseling Center in Southfield (ie., Success, Fortune, Black Enterprise, Inc., Precious Times, In Style, World, Self, Ebony, Forbes, Life, Essence, O, National Geographic, and more) The Girls, shared their vision boards with us, and were given feed-back, encouragement, and ideas for critical thinking from the instructors and their peers. Picture bottom right corner, the coach Missionary Pamela Hudson was at work admonishing the girls to think about their future and the future of our world. “Our

deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” Marianne Williamson
