Meet Tony: Father, Education Advocate, and One Girl Ambassador

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

A few years ago we met an incredible father who would stop at nothing to give his daughters an education. His name is Musisi, and if you haven’t already, you can watch his amazing story here. While everyone who hears Musisi’s story is moved by it, it resonated with Tony on a whole other level. “I’m a father of two young adults who (in their own words) have never wanted for anything. Watching what Musisi had to do everyday to ensure his daughters were able to stay in school, was inspiring.” Tony was more than hooked – he was compelled…

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….

Meet Amy: Writer, Parkour Practitioner, One Girl Ambassador

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

By | Blog, Do It In A Dress, How to get a job in International Development, Opportunities | 2 Comments

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…

By | Amazing Supporters, Blog, Opportunities | No Comments

And her name is.. (NOT TELLING!) At least not in the first paragraph, how would I get you to keep reading?  For the last few months we’ve been undergoing some exciting changes at One Girl – and now we can finally share all the good news with you!

As most of you might know, Dave one of our Co-Founder stepped down from One Girl last year which meant the co-CEO role that Dave and I (Chantelle) shared had to be reinvented. We wanted to take some time…
