WHEE – Women Helping to Empower Each other

The Upper School of St. John’s School in Houston, TX added a new club to its list of student groups and organizations. WHEE (Women Helping to Empower Each other) was conceived by teachers Ms. Gara Johnson-West and Ms. Elimari Sánchez-Ortiz, and a group of girls selected from all grades and social groups within the Upper School.

WHEE’s mission is “to celebrate womanhood and educate students about the issues that universally affect women.” They would like to encourage female students to form lasting and empowering relationships with other females within the St. John’s community and beyond – which is why they wanted to get involved with Women for Women International.

The club has participated in workshops and put on a series of bake sales and are proud to have raised $500 to support women survivors of war.

Thank you WHEE and keep up the good work!
