Last year this decision changed my life… Now it’s your turn

I’ve always wanted to change the world. If there was some kind of Changemakers Anonymous meeting that existed, I’d be there. Every week. “Hi, my name is Sharni, and I want to make a difference”.  Equipped with a strong sense of justice, I can’t remember a time where I wanted to do anything else with my life. But the path before me wasn’t clear – How can I change the world? What contribution can I make? Where do I start? What can I do? After high school I completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Development Studies (because that’s what people do, right?) and…

How can I help?

By | Amazing Supporters, Blog, Opportunities, Our amazing team | One Comment

It’s a question we get asked all too often, and it comes in many different shapes and sizes. “How can I help?” “Let me know what you need.” “I would like to get involved!” “I’ve got some time now and want to volunteer my time.” “What would be the best way for me to make a difference?” “What can I do?” “I’ve got x y & z skills, and I’d like to support One Girl’s work!” Firstly? This is awesome. We know there are so many passionate people out there who maybe aren’t getting that ‘fire in the belly’ feeling…

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve opened up applications for our 2014 Ambassadors, so I thought it would be a great time to share our Top 3 Lessons Learnt from the whole experience.

Although it seemed like ‘the normal’ thing to do, I felt empty inside. Something was missing. Meaning. A purpose. I had an inkling that I was meant to do something great while I was here, but I didn’t know what it was. At the…
