Who we are and what we do


Inner Wings, A Confidence Building Foundation, located in London, UK, is a charitable foundation established by Melissa & Darren Roos. Inner Wings aims at building confidence, courage and bravery in young girls aged 6 to 12 around the world through a wide range of available programmes and events, such as mentoring and role modelling. We will continuously be introducing new programmes and activities such as book launches, events and workshops, so please keep an eye on our website or follow us on FacebookTwitter, Instagram, YouTube or LinkedIn for updates.

The global gender imbalance remains a real challenge and our hope is that Inner Wings will contribute to fix it.
