Now it’s personal

I remember one of our team members saying to me after her first visit to meet some of the girls we support…she said. Ok now it’s personal for me, they’re now my friends and people I want to do life with.

It’s been much the same experience for 2 volunteers Ulrike and Franziska (pictured) who have been in Fiji staying with Urmila and running focus groups in the schools. I can’t wait to see all their photos and hear the stories of girls’ dreams for the future. Among them were dreams of becoming doctors and teachers, among the barriers they know too well are poor health, limited resources, lack of support from family or remote living.

It’s such a joy to meet girls like Shoyal in the gorgeous purple uniform and know that her future looks very different because of your generosity.

If you would like to know how you can volunteer with us or get involved in any other way like becoming a sponsor school, drop us a line.

Warmly,

Jane and the ‘a Girl & Her World’ team
