What we take for granted

Today is my lovely daughter’s birthday. Pictured here as a 7 year old who had just left Australia for our family’s 3 year adventure in Fiji, today she is a happy 15 year old with the world at her feet.

She is talented and takes every opportunity to fulfil her singing, dancing and acting dreams and thrives in her school environment where she is encouraged to be her best. She has good friends, eats healthy food (mostly!) and lives in the headspace that anything is possible if she merely applies her resourcefulness to finding a way to do it!

Tonight we will go out to dinner as a family and all day today she has been celebrated.

Sound like a story about your child’s birthday? Sadly that story doesn’t get told everywhere. Many girls around the world can not imagine a life like this, their future is one of limited opportunity and the inability to dream or hope of a way it could be different.

Educating girls in developing countries can help redirect their story, a Girl & her world is working with families in the Pacific to help break cycles of poverty and help people dream about the things that we take for granted…

Partner with us as we partner with them,

Warmly,

Jane and the a Girl & her world Team
