Gumption Girls is an Edinburgh based social enterprise that aims to inspire girls to be confident, creative and resilient. We run workshops, camps and events designed to boost girls’ resilience, leadership and self-esteem. What makes Gumption Girls unique is that we put confidence building at the heart of our programmes and use science, technology, engineering, arts and maths (STEAM) activities to facilitate this.
Our mission is to challenge gender stereotypes and help girls discover who they are and decide where they want to go. Design thinking, social action and enquiry-based learning are at the core of our framework for empowering girls to believe in their abilities and have the gumption to give whatever they want to do a go.
