Take powerful, tangible action this International Women's Day

With an education AND a skillset – girls can literally achieve anything!

Beyond education, we’re supporting young women and girls to learn critical life and technical skills – so they’re fully equipped to find valuable and sustainable work within their communities.   

How do we do this? Through Girls Emerge, our targeted vocational skills training program in safe, girl-friendly spaces in Uganda.  

The most exciting part of Girls Emerge? It’s also about helping young women to challenge career pathways in Uganda that are traditionally shaped by gender. PLUS, with more women in the workforce, we’re helping to reduce the gender pay gap AND break generational cycles of poverty. Pretty neat, hey? 

BUT. An uncontrollable force (yep, COVID-19) has unfortunately interrupted the roll out of Girls Emerge over the past year, where an already recruited group of young women have been unable to complete their practical skills training, due to COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions. They’re currently sitting tight and waiting patiently to get back to developing their skills – and changing their lives. 

And we really need your help to make that happen! With your support, we can restart practical lessons, ensuring young women have hard skills that they can take into the working world, breaking down barriers, reducing poverty and smashing gender norms!

Girls Emerge Uganda Participants, March 2019/One Girl

We choose to challenge gender norms this International Women’s Day, will you join us?

This year’s IWD theme is #ChooseToChallenge – because a challenged world is an alert world, and from challenge comes change. We choose to challenge this IWD, and we’d love for you to join us! 

With a super kind, super generous donation today, we can kick off the next phase of this absolutely phenomenal program, supporting young Ugandan women to grow both personally and professionally, creating a whole new life for themselves and their families! 

  • $35 could provide sexual health training to one girl
  • $60 could buy software for one girl's phone repair business
  • $120 could buy supplies for one girl's paper product business
  • $450 could get one girl everything she needs to become a baker
  • $920 could buy three beehives for a girl-led business

  Please donate to support Girls Emerge today, and help young Ugandan women to #ChooseToChallenge gender norms, change their lives and change THE WORLD!

I was an ambassador last year and have been amazed at the perseverance of this charity to assist girls and women in Sierra Leone and Uganda. Donating this small amount is the least I can do for a charity doing such big things!
