We are really excited to have our first volunteer duo heading to rural Fiji next week. Franzkiska (pictured), in year 11 at the German International School in Sydney and her teacher Ulrike, will be leaving for 2 weeks to stay with our in-country co-ordinator Urmila and seeing first hand what life is like for some of the girls we support in Rakiraki. They will be running focus groups with girls in the schools we work with, meeting with other rural organisations working with youth on the ground and then visiting the girls we support in their homes to meet their families.
We are looking forward to some fantastic pics and great stories. Team a Girl & her World is thrilled to have partnered with the German International School as they come alongside us in the work that we are doing. They now join 3 other Australian sponsor schools who are fundraising to support girls and their families in the pacific.
Anything you’d like Franziska and Ulrike to find out while they’re there? I have asked them to get some conversations going around dreams for the future. What do girls see in their future? Can they imagine a different life? My daughter thinks she can take on the world. I often wonder how the girls that we support think…I know some of them see themselves as doctors which I love, can’t wait to hear more..
If you’d like to know more or get your school involved, connect with us on Facebook or Twitter or drop us a line,
