Chloe recently spent some time with us reading and researching for her Duke of Edinburgh course. This is what she had to say afterwards…
After just one week of researching information and inspiration I came to realize that ‘a Girl & her world’ not only provides assistance to Girls in rural Fiji but also provides them with the opportunity to make something bigger for themselves!
The greater importance for helping people and families become self sufficient is clearly emphasized in this organization. Often people from developed countries find themselves traveling over to developing countries in order to try and change other people’s lives in the short term, over a week or a month. This means that once they leave and the donations run out, people are left back where they started, and are no better off… ‘a Girl & her world’ works to change people’s lives not for a short period of time but for a life time, and for future generations.
Education is a way that lives can be changed for the better, a Girl with an education can go on to make a business, and therefore make something of herself.. The ability to be self sufficient and support their families will not only influence the next generation but could mean a country changing from a developing to developed.
Empowering girls with knowledge and skills means the next generations will not have to endure the hard ship and sorrow that so many experience today, giving a brighter future for all!
Please continue to support ‘a Girl & her world’ and the change they are making in rural Fiji.
Posted on the 18th birthday of another wonderful young woman, Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in the face by the Taliban for wanting an education. She now advocates for Girls’ education all over the world.
