Sisu is a Finnish term for bravery, determination and resilience. 

We believe women and girls are often deterred from showing and sharing their sisu - bravey, determination and resilience - due to societal expectations and different levels of self-confidence.

We aim to inspire confidence, bravery and resilience in girls by showcasing strong, healthy and positive female role models. 

 
 
 
 

Set your goal. live your dreams. never give up

STRONG, POSITIVE & HEALTHY FEMALE ROLE MODELS

You can only be what you can see, so we work with strong, positive and healthy female role models to inspire sisu and to support gender equality in communities.

 

HOW DO WE SHOWCASE FEMALE ROLE MODELS?

We share stories of healthy, strong and positive female role models through our collection of fully illustrated hardcover children's books and through our monthly stories, published online, which feature real women.
