"Did you know? Six out of ten girls stop doing something they love because they feel bad about the way they look." These were the findings of Dove 2010 study.
Free Being Me is a program presented by Dove and the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). The "aim is to improve girls' self-esteem and body confidence through fun and empowering activities." Girls can work on the Free Being Me badge programme beginning in January 2014. Although the badge program has not yet begun, the site is active with ideas and activities. You can find it at http://www.free-being-me.com/ . This is geared toward girls aged 7-14.
