One Girl Ambassadors 2021

I'm fundraising for girls' education

Did you know that 130 million girls worldwide are not given the opportunity to receive an education? Educating girls not only changes the lives of those girls, but also their families, communities and countries. Not only that, but getting more girls in school will have a positive impact on climate change! A win-win-win.

A young girl living in Sierra Leone is more likely to be married by the time she is 18 than she is to finish school. We are changing the world and want YOU to be apart of it

This year I'm proud to be a One Girl Ambassador! I'm supporting One Girl by raising awareness and raising funds for girls' education.  Everyone deserves the right to an education!

Will you help me change the world one girl at a time?

My Updates

Thank you

A humongous thank you to Michelle Vellacott, Lou Beard and the two anonymous donors, who have donated within the last three days. You are helping the world become an equal place for all!

Great Big Thank You!

A great big thank you to Jamie Whitlock and the whole Brubecks Boutique Food's crew for donating to my One Girl fundraising page. Thank you for being a part of this journey of changing the lives of young women in Uganda and Sierra Leone. Attached is a photo with me and your delicious food in the background.

When a girl is educated, her health, status, income and entire future changes  for the better, and she'll go on to educate her, smaller but healthier, family and community. The ripple effects are incredible - and best of all everyone in her community will benefit! It's hard to imagine, but a girl in Sierra Leone is more likely to be married by the age of 18 than she is to finish high school - and only 16% of girls ever complete high school. But when you educate a girl, her income will increase by 10-25% for every year she stays in school. She'll get married when she chooses, be able to think for herself, have control over her own income and break the cycle of poverty. The power of education creates immediate and long-lasting change!

Thank you to the recent donations from Brubecks, Katrina Shannon, Shaun Preece and Rebecca Pascoe. You are helping change the world!

Jumping For Joy

I am literally jumping for joy. Thank you everyone so so much! We have made it to my fundraising target in less than 4 days!!! So what else is there to do but change that goal to $2000! I know that together we can do it. So far in this campaign we have raised enough money for a girl the same age as me (15, Yr 10) to finish her high school education.  A special thank you Bek, Adam and Jake Wall, Deb McNair, Karen McInnarney, Heather Holland and Michelle McLeod, who have donated last night and thus far today. Together we can change the world one girl at a time!

Grateful

I seriously can't believe my eyes. Thank you, thank you , thank you!!! To the anonymous donor: you alone have donated enough money for a girl to receive an entire years worth of education and some more added on top. I can't begin to thank you enough!

CHECKPOINT TIME!

I woke up this morning and my page was at a WHOPPING $553. WE ARE OVER HALFWAY THERE!!!!!

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated. A quick shout out to Graham and Lyndal Kirk, Rhys McPherson, Kristin Kirk and Sam Allport. Your contribution to this page is greatly appreciated!

A MASSIVE THANKS!!!

I haven't even started fundraising yet and we have already raised enough money for a girl to have access to an entire year of education and five pairs of school shoes AND two years worth of sanitary items. We are off to a very strong start!  A great big thank you to Nichola Davies, Kelly Ditchburn, Alison Alsop, Nadia Howland, Kelly James and Elodie and Rachelle Whitaker, who collectively have raised $124! I really appreciate your input. Together we are changing the world one girl at a time! 

I will be releasing info on my first fundraising idea soon. I just need to get everything ready to go. Once again such a massive thank you. Without you, none of this would be possible. xxx

My AMAZING Parents

A massive thank you to my AMAZING parents. Thanks so much for donating $250. I am now over a quarter of a way to reaching the goal of $1000. Whoop! Whoop! This money will be going towards scholarships for girls. These scholarships include uniforms, textbooks, lunch money, sanitary items, hand sanitiser, face masks, study materials and extracurricular classes. Once again such a big thank you!
