Weʼre raising £4,550 to fund me to train as a Girls Journeying Together Group Facilitator
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This is possibly the most awkward thing I've ever had to do! I'm used to fundraising for charity, but this is a whole other ballgame! So, where to start... I think I'll write this as a sort of FAQ section to try and preempt any questions you might have about what I'm asking for your hard earned cash for.
1. Rites for Girls... what's that? And why have you spelt it wrong?
First of all, no I haven't spelt it wrong. Initiating our teens into adulthood is so important and so lost in our culture. We leave our adolescents to initiate themselves and we see them attempting to look and behave like adults. Rites for Girls can help you create a meaningful rite of passage for girls to acknowledge and celebrate their growing up.
Rites for Girls offers mentoring for girls right through their adolescence. In Girls Journeying Together groups pre-teen girls prepare for puberty and learn how to take charge of their emotional, social, and spiritual well-being. This guidance continues through their teenage years. They also support mothers, especially while their daughters journey through their teens. They want to make growing up for girls an easier, safer, and better supported journey.
Rites for Girls; girls groups; group facilitator; aim to support ALL girls through the challenges of being 10-12 years old; tools and skills; training and supervision; my calling.
