Alive and Learning Challenge Update

The Dilemma of 11 Non-quitting Girls!

The Juhudi field team has identified 11 teenage girls who urgently require fees in order to attend a 3 month tailoring and dress making training. The girls, who dropped out of school due to poverty, are keen on reigniting their shattered dreams. They are expected to join the Juhudi project of rescuing teenage girls currently listed on Globalgiving UK website.

Through well wishers and other sponsors, we hope to raise £1500.00 required to cover tuition and practical session fees by Mid August 2009. We thank Globalgiving UK for the alive and learning challenge; an opportunity we believe will help our organization reach a wider audience on this noble course. The chance to receive a bonus of £1000 if we reach the target of £2000 by 14th August is indeed a challenge within a challenge. We therefore appeal to more sponsors to help us achieve this realistic goal by making a donation to www.globalgiving.co.uk/2247.

We are highly optimistic that together we will help these young girls reshape their future with every penny that is donated. Rita, one of the girls, has her ambitions set to becoming a boutique owner once she is through with her training and supported with capital to start off. She expects to uplift the rest of her family members from the yoke of poverty. “I am very encouraged by our sponsors, I won’t let them down. I want to help the rest of my siblings and myself to have a better life than we do” she said amidst tears of joy.
