Elorm believes that empowering the girl child is the way to go.
To achieve that, she envision soliciting for funds and going round all basic schools in the Volta region especially the ones in the deprived areas to speak with the girls and donate items to the brilliant but needy ones and eventually establish a Girl Child Club in most of the schools to make her dream a reality.
