Project Report | Jan 14, 2024
Ending 2023 With Smiles, Impact and Social Entrepreneurship

Dear valued Supporters,

Firstly, Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. We hope those celebrating the holiday season have a festive and healthy break.

As we kick off 2024, we are thrilled to share the incredible impact your generous support has had on the Girls Got This project in Cebu, Philippines, over the past three months.

One major accomplishment is the successful finalization of mental health and resiliency sessions for the Cebu Cohort, providing vital tools for young girls to navigate life's challenges. Additionally, your ongoing contributions played a crucial role in concluding FundLife's COVID-19 Emergency Response for Girls in Cebu, ensuring the well-being of vulnerable girls during these challenging times and helping them deal with the fallout of the COVID-19 crisis across Cebu.

Our Social Enterprise Pathway Challenge was a resounding success, empowering over 50 young women to develop business proposals and get them thinking critically about becoming self-employed rather than trying to apply for regular employment. On December 23, the final 8 participants showcased their entrepreneurial spirit, pitching their businesses to a panel of esteemed business judges. Your support has helped turn dreams into tangible opportunities for these aspiring entrepreneurs.

Furthermore, FundLife conducted Case Management and Referral Pathway Systems Training, reinforcing child protection measures. The workshop focused on essential skills, including handling disclosures reporting abuses, neglect, and exploitation. This ensures a safer environment for the girls, with clear channels for addressing concerns.

Your ongoing commitment has transformed lives and created lasting change for all the girls touched by our work. We look forward to continuing this incredible journey together in the coming months.

We invite you to read a short story about Marian's journey, just one of the many girls who has benefited from the GGT programming over the last 24 months; https://www.girlsgotthis.org/post/ggt-champion-part-of-young-facilitators-during-the-4th-national-plan-of-action-for-children

 

Thank you for being a beacon of hope for the Girls Got This project and allowing us to increase our reach and impact. 

With gratitude,
