Happy Birthday Rachel!

Happy Birthday and Vinaka Vakalevu to Rachel who celebrated her 30th birthday recently.

Instead of gifts, she asked her friends and family to donate to our girls and raised $600! Rachel has asked that this money go towards supporting 2 girls to stay in school for a year…it will cover fees, books and bags, stationery and uniforms.

It will also contribute to the sanitary pads and travel expenses that some girls are not able to cover, simple things our girls take for granted can become barriers to education in developing countries.

If you would like to host your own fundraiser or ask for donations in lieu of gifts like Rachel did, find out how here

Kym and I are about to get on a plane to Fiji this morning and can’t wait to see Urmila and the girls, the teachers and other community members we are working with.

Thanks again Rachel and all who give so generously to make a difference in these lives!

Warmly,

 

Jane for team ‘a Girl & her world’
