Sass and other superpowers #DayoftheGirl

This weekend we are celebrating International Day of the Girl!

The global theme is ‘The Power of the Adolescent Girl’ or if you met some of the Girls we support you could also call it SASS!

Girls are powerful creatures. Contrary to the fairy tales that tell us Girls need saving from their weakness, Girls can move mountains. One of their superpowers – breaking chains of poverty in a single generation.

On #Dayofthegirl we are celebrating this superpower and asking for your help to help them bring it to life! We have created a Crowdfunding campaign called 60 Girls Back to School and your gift will help us get them there in 2016.

What better launch date than #DayoftheGirl ?! We will keep it open until Christmas and every donation over $20 will receive a beautiful set of Gift Cards in the post!

a Girl & her world started with one Girl. She was 14 and wanted to get back to her school in rural Fiji but there were barriers. Like fees, travel fares, stationery and uniform/shoes.

Sanitary pads were also not easily available and her school didn’t have toilet paper or running water, so once a month things got tricky.

So we just supported this Girl and her family to come up with their own solutions to overcoming these barriers. Five years later she’s about to graduate high school and we’re supporting 60 others! Many will be the first woman in their family to complete their education, let alone tertiary studies that we will support many of them to pursue. It really is a game changer.

We need up to $10,000 by early January to get the first lot of expenses sorted. This campaign and our lush Christmas cakes which you can soon order, will help bring us closer!

Thank you – We adore these sassy, powerful Girls and believe in a better day for them.

Love you to connect with us via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram

Warmly,

Jane for team ‘a Girl & her world’
