Increasing Girls' Opportunities

Dear Friend,

Our team is incredibly grateful for your support. It has been so heartening to see us come together on a global scale. 

Together we are helping girls to not only recover from difficult moments, but to also think expansively about their futures. Seven girls passed their examinations to join secondary education. Six hundred and seventy two girls were trained on life skills and reproductive health. Farmer groups in Butiama and Serengeti have registered with our roadshow assistance. Digital Champions have reported thirty five cases within a month, all of which have been resolved. These numbers are from our latest report alone.

It’s worth acknowledging the humanity within these facts. These are girls with undeniable, impenetrable spirits. They have acquired the courage to question deep-rooted customs, even when it costs, and these questions inspire their vision of what the world could be. Our work is so vital because together we allow girls to see the possibilities of what they can achieve.

Our work isn’t yet over. We’re currently housing around one hundred and fifteen girls with more rescue operations underway. Our resources are strained including safe houses, community outreach, legal support, and educational opportunities. With your continued support we can prolong our impact, together.

Thank you so much,

Rhobi Samwelly
