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.

"The children found their superpowers as well as strategies for how to speak out with confidence. It was a really powerful time of growing and self-reflection.”

"Lucy is now happy to play with others more readily and no longer comes to school crying and worrying everyday."

Finding Your Superpower!

Summer programme | August 2021



She rides upon the fierce breeze of mighty winds, drifting along coastlines landscaping sunsets of lustrous gold,
Yet with all her firmness known, she flocks secluded and alone, in hope to find a yearning passion within a hidden purpose,

Despite her claim of freedom, she binds herself through sowed tears of disbelief and dismal sorrow,

And though her talons weren't always sharp, and her feathers weren't always steel, she still decides to hunt;
Soar in spite of what you feel...

Poem by Destiny G-R Boora
