ABOUT OUR INITIATIVES

SUCCESSFUL SISTER SESSIONS

The Successful Sister Sessions is a Frogang Foundations Inc. capstone mentorship program and runs throughout the year. Our program year runs through the school year and wraps up during the summer.  During the school year sessions run weekly and during the summer there are weekly sessions as well as field trips to expose the young ladies to various educational, cultural, and social activities.

BLACK DOLL GIVEAWAY

Frogang Foundation’s Black Doll Giveaway focuses on building positive representation and self-esteem for black girls through gifting dolls who look like them. This initiative began as a community-wide Doll Drop Off Challenge during Christmas  2017 with 3 meet up locations around the city: Homewood, The Hill District, and Beltzhoover.

Not only do we collect, ship, and deliver black Barbies and brown dolls, but we give them away for free!
