The Princess Party is an event to encourage young women to value and respect themselves, have confidence and to reach for their dreams. The event provides young women with a special dinner and a fun social night. Guest speakers, games and prizes encourage the girls to develop a sense of pride and respect for their individuality, femininity and purpose as a young woman.
The event is promoted through local schools and community organisations. Guest speakers, sponsors and youth workers attend the event as volunteers and support the young women by interacting with the participants promoting healthy discussion and social interaction. The event is generously sponsored by business and community leaders.
Over 1000 girls have experienced Princess Parties since they began five years ago. Lifehouse Project is developing the website www.theamiraproject.com in the hope that princess parties will be run all over the country soon.
