Free Being Me

Empowering young people through better body confidence and self-esteem

Did you know that 8 out of 10 girls are so concerned with the way they look that they opt out of important activities*?

Imagine a world where no-one felt this pressure. Since 2014, WAGGGS and Dove have been working towards this incredible vision; we want everyone to feel free to be themselves – to feel Free Being Me!

We have reached over 6.5 million young people with body confidence and self esteem activities over 125 countries so far but there’s a lot more work to be done!
