    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    My daughter Vikki ( pictured ) is working in Zimbabwe with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) for the past 4 years where and is responsible for promoting education, health and wellbeing to the girls of Zimbabwe. It is common place for girls as young as 12 years of age to be married off as their parents cannot afford to educate them. These marriages are not marriages as we know them, they are essentially child abuse!

    Shamiso and her story are an example of what happens to these girls. Shamiso is a 15-year-old who has endured more than her share of tragedy. When she was three, her mother died. Two years later, her father also passed away. She went to live with an abusive uncle and was nearly forced to marry an older man. She has only recently found peace – and the promise of a better future – with the help of the Sista2Sista Club. Hear her story by following the link below.

    Sista2Sista clubs offer a safe place where vulnerable girls can speak with mentors and each other about their problems. The programme also aims to give girls the confidence and self-esteem to stand up for themselves and encourages girls to get an education. If you would like to read more about these girls, follow the link below

    By donating to this worthy cause, you will help girls have a better and brighter future.

    Here’s where you come in…

    Through education, this can change. Many girls cannot attend school when they get their period and miss out on up to a week of school each month during the year. Some that drop out due to their period risk not coming back to school at all. So sanitary ware, or "dignity kits" as we call them, restores dignity to young girls and allows them to attend school all throughout the year.

    JUST £10 will provide a ‘Dignity Kit’ for one girl for a WHOLE YEAR!
