Daughters in Demand

"we D.I.D that!"

we are all daughters to someone or something; be it our biological parents, our passions or beliefs, from girlhood to womanhood, we exist and create on an entirely different frequency than any other species.


and for a huge majority of our time, our lives have been under the finest scope of scrutiny -- in the hands of hurt and mouths of manipulation -- left bare to our society's systematic oppression. until ultimately, we decide to #MakeACHAiNGE.


oh, what a task it is. but here, we strive to make the process better, so that the days become easier. here, we share our stories to help and not hinder. here, we are open to all backgrounds, and stand firm for our beliefs as well. here, we build to provide for existing generations and heal for the ones to come.


womyn, are the center of our work, literally and figuratively, because we are the center of the world. we believe when we are healed within ourselves, we are healed within our work, relationships, etc. and that impact echoes out into the world infinitely.


scroll to read more about how and why this initiative was created.

after a period of self-reflection, our Director decided to shift the focus of CHAiNGES to a narrower audience then her previous love-- black owned business; introducing "Daughters in Demand" a youth mentoring program for little girls with big entrepreneurial dreams. the goal was to be available to young girls and women in Mechanicsville Atlanta that summer as a resource for motivation and empowerment.


staying true to our model of providing opportunities for all to thrive, we hosted a summer event where the girls were able to let their hair down and be themselves, dancing, singing, learning about yoga, interacting with entrepreneurs and much more. the energy was amazing and later that evening we wrapped up with a mature conversation among mostly womenpreneurs with how we can make this impact consistently, not only for ourselves but the generations that are right on our heels.


for our Director, it was during this event that a light bulb flashed on; although she wasn't a physical mother herself, she knew that the seasoned saying of "it takes a village" is truly a reality and so more brainstorming occurred. she was enticed by an earlier belief that people should take responsibility for people in their communities like we use to, but was met with the reality that a huge majority had now been engulfed by the "self-care" excuse, not to be bothered with what's going on around them.

and 3 years later, here we are. forever in a continuous process of growing and healing at different points and in different lanes; now gathering together to not only be the Village but to sustain a holistic one.


Along with our Fiscal Sponsorship & Community Service services, we have also introduced a model similar to the One for One that groups like Tom Shoes implements; which allows our supporters to now #MakeACHAiNGE by Purchasing with a Purpose!! We have created bundles that include a variety or products and services from our Daughters in Demand that everyone can take advantage of!


Our Director created some introductory questions for the Daughters in Demand; link in to get a notification of when we diver deeper in to these answers!
