Discovering Me…Without You was launched in 2019 by the Fatherless Daughter Empowerment Project, a division of Esther Productions Inc. The essay contest is designed to educate the public about the importance of fathers in the lives and development of girls and women. Nationally, more than 24 million children are growing up in homes without their fathers. In the Washington Metropolitan region at least 60 percent of homes are single parent households, many of them headed by women. The contest is intended to provide a platform for some of those children, particularly fatherless girls.

"When I was a little younger; I was sad because I would see other girls with their dads and realize I didn't have that. On the TV when I see dads enjoying fun times with kids, I think, 'Wow I wish I had that with my dad." Y Gorham (a 2019 Discovering Me...contest winner.)https://www.estherproductionsinc.com/contest
