Greta and Amy: Gal pals, University students and One Girl Ambassadors

By | Amazing Supporters, Blog, Do It In A Dress, Fundraising, Opportunities | No Comments

We’re firm believers in working together to achieve big goals. One Girl wouldn’t be where it is today if passionate people from varied backgrounds, and with different skill sets, didn’t come together and decide to work towards a common mission. And it’s a value we bring to everything we do: from our core team, our volunteers, and our approach to development where we work in partnership with local organisations and communities. We know we’re stronger together, and that our projects are more successful and impactful when we work collaboratively. Working together is something that comes naturally to Greta and Amy….

How we stay nimble: 3 reasons why we DON’T tie funding

By | Administration Costs, Blog, Fundraising, Setting up a non-profit | No Comments

Impact is the new black. In the not-for-profit world, people want to know that their support is actually making a difference. And that’s smart. We’ve all heard too much about wasted funds, inefficient operations and less than perfect ethics to just hand over our money and leave it up to an organisation to do their thing. Instead we want to know how our money will be used, and crucially how lives will be changed as a result of our support. We want to know: “What’s my impact?” So it’s no surprise that people sometimes ask us if they can tie…

By | Amazing Supporters, Blog, Fundraising, Our amazing team | No Comments

It’s only February, but there’s a LOT happening at One Girl HQ. This year we’re growing and hoping to provide access to education for more girls than ever before. But here’s the thing – we can’t do it alone. We need YOU if we’re going to get there. Here are 6 ways that you can help us this year. 1. Buy your gifts at the One Girl shop! Is there anything better than a one stop shop for gifts for family, friends and…let’s be real…ourselves? We’ve been filling the One Girl Shop with all new goodies for 2017 including tote…

Meet the girl who took on Everest to educate girls

By | Amazing Supporters, Challenges, Fundraising | No Comments

We are constantly inspired by our incredible community. Every day you blow us away with your passion, your creativity, and your enthusiasm. And the lengths (and heights!) you’ll go to in order to educate girls.  While most of us were vegging out, nursing food comas, or just generally eating, drinking and merry-making over the festive season, Georgia was taking on something epic. She was trekking to Everest Base Camp and she was doing it to educate girls. Starting with a goal of raising $900 to educate 3 girls – Georgia was immediately overwhelmed with the support she got. As the…

What if the clothes you wore could change a life?

By | Blog, Do It In A Dress, Events, Fundraising | No Comments

It’s time to dust off those dresses. We’ve launched Do It In A Dress for 2015 and and we want you to get ready to change thousands of lives this October! But before you do anything, watch this video. It’s our best campaign video yet and we’re so ridiculously excited to share it with the world…. Now if that doesn’t inspire you to get your dress on, we don’t know what will! 66 million girls around the world don’t have access to education, simply because they were born a girl. Because they were born into poverty, or a culture or…

One Girl Gala : A Night To Dream

By | Blog, Events, Fundraising | One Comment

Last Saturday night in an amazing warehouse space in Melbourne, something incredible happened. Something that took months of planning, design, preparation (and I’ll admit it – a little panic). We held our annual One Girl Gala – and it was a stunning, inspiring, ridiculously fun night. We set out to create a night filled with dreams, the most inspiring stories, and some sneaky surprises for our amazing community. And we did just that. We created a Night to Dream. When you’re young, the world is your oyster. You can be a ballerina, an astronaut, a cowboy if you want! But…
