I’ll run to change that…

Yesterday I met up with some of our Girl Ambassadors who have just visited Fiji…I heard of their stories and their interactions with the girls, the experiences that will stay with them forever and their excitement about continuing to fundraise, seeing the difference relatively small amounts of money can make in people’s lives.

Over the next few months we will post some of their blogs and their great pics to share with you.

While they were there they visited an inland village in desperate need of an evacuation centre for the cyclone season. When their bridges are out during these times, girls and women have to walk a long way to get clean water and food and to get to school. There have been 5 cases in recent months of girls being sexually assaulted on this journey.

Our team will visit this village later in the year with Urmila to see how we can help support what this community is already doing to find their own solutions.

On September 22nd we will be running in the Sydney Bridge Run for our girls and the communities they live in.¬†Click here¬†to see how you can join our team or how you can support us if, like me, you’re not really a fan of running.

Being raped on the way to school is not supposed to be part of a girl’s childhood.

I don’t like running but I’ll run to change that.

Love you to connect with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram,

Warmly,

Jane for team ‘a Girl & her world’
