2018 PBM Annual Fundraiser on Oct 24
We loved celebrating PBM at Sweetwater Music Hall, with over 200 people, including PBM program managers, community leaders, generous donors, and 23 of our amazing PBM girls and their families! Thanks to generous support from this evening, we’re well on our way to our goal of $300,000, which will engage up to 30 young women in our 2019 year-long programs and their travel to Africa. If you weren’t able to attend and would like to donate, it’s not too late!
Hear from our 2018 PBM girls!
If you didn’t have a chance to attend, please watch this video to hear from our 2018 girls about their experience with PBM, their time in Africa, and what’s next.

Women as Global Changemakers - 4/24/18 Grace Event
What an evening! To those that were able to join us for our Women as Global Changemakers panel discussion, thank you. We were inspired by our panelists, and proud of the Powerful Beyond Measure Changemakers who attended with their parents and navigated the room with poise and charm. Powerful Beyond Measure is here to support the leadership of exceptional young women. This evening at Grace Cathedral affirmed why we show up every day. Thank you to our speakers, and to Daraja Academy for co-hosting Women as Global Changemakers.
