Project Closing: RESONATE'S New Giving Platform

By Ayla Schlosser | Co-Founder and Executive Director, RESONATE

In October of 2015 Resonate was awarded nonprofit status by the IRS, a designation that recognizes the work we have done to date, and marks a turning point in our growth as an organization. We have been working hard to build the programmatic infrastructure necessary to take our program to the next level and reach even more women and girls with our transformational leadership training.

This has been possible thanks to support from Global Grassroots as our fiscal sponsor, and we are closing our Global Giving project to take full ownership of our work moving forward. Through our four program areas – Storytelling for Leadership, Action Leadership, Professional Development, and Training of Facilitators – we have reached more than 1,000 participants. 

One of those 1,000 participants, Immaculee, told us how her life had changed just a month after our training. During an interview she said,

“I can’t find a way to describe how much your training has changed my life. I have been experiencing violence in my marriage and I failed to stand up for my rights for many years. I am married and have eight children…my husband refused to take responsibilities of sending them to school and I kept quiet...After your training, the only child who managed to study up to primary six, he got high enough marks to continue with his education and my husband refused to help pay school fees. Thanks to your training, for the first time, I talked to our cell leader. They invited my husband for a meeting and requested him to get the money ($30USD) and send our child to school. I am happy that I advocated for my son and I wish I could have done the same for my other children.” 

Immaculee’s self-confidence and willingness to stand up for herself will have a lasting impact on her and her children. Even though we are closing our GlobalGiving page, you can continue to have an impact on Immaculee and thousands of others like her by visiting our website: http://resonateworkshops.org
