About Us

Who Are We


Gustavia Pearls Women's Outreach is a non-profit 501-C-3 organization where we develop a platform for women and girls to enhance their lives through a wide variety of formats - from sexual and domestic abuse prevention programs, mental health awareness sessions, grief and hope sessions, spiritual encouragement, education in STEM  (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) workshops and events that inspire individual advancement.

Our Goal


Inspire women and girls to gain confidence to exercise the power of their voice and become leaders in their communities.

Our Vision


Provide exposure to women and girls whose lives are disadvantaged by social and economic circumstances while challenging them to discover their purpose.


Dwantrina Russell founded Gustavia Pearls Women's Outreach a non profit organization in 2012 during a time when she was faced with emotional challenges and unexpected life changes. Through these experiences she began to seek out ways to improve her life and heal what was broken.

Dwantrina is now sharing her personal journey of overcoming obstacles to achieve great success while pursuing her God gifted purpose. She's inspiring others to start their transformation right where they are by providing practical tools which can be used everyday.


Dwantrina is a member of Texas Girls Collaborative Project Champions Board and UT Physician - Jensen Clinic Community Advisory Board. 

Recipient of the d-mars Top 50 Professionals & Entreprenuers of Texas Award.

Changing the world together


Young Ladies of Pearls


Empowering girls to be leaders and influencers in their communities through Technology, Social Skills Education, Financial Literacy, Health and Wellness.





At Gustavia Pearls Women’s Outreach, we develop partnerships with community centers, schools, faith-based groups and youth organizations that understand the importance of supporting underserved communities through high-quality STEM and Educational programs. 

Most of the youth in communities we serve do not have financial resources to participate in out of school programs in the areas of STEM, Mental Health Awareness, Financial Literacy, Social Skills Workshops and Lifeline Supoort. 

 Gustavia Pearls Women’s Outreach subsidizes the startup of our STEM and Educational programs with funding from our Sponsors. Your sponsorship enables us to provide our services without charge to youth in our communities. 

Our goal is to support and enable youth to become self-sufficient financially and technically. Your investment helps us equip local students with STEM knowledge and skills to succeed as tomorrow’s workforce. 

Become a sponsor today to help our community develop leaders for tomorrow!
