Many of you know that I’m a mentor for The Girls’ Network, and now I’m supporting their Christmas fundraiser to help them reach even more girls in 2020.
About The Girls’ Network
It’s the end of the decade. The Girls’ Network have spent the better half of the last 10 years working towards their mission of unlimited futures for all young women. Samantha was one of their first ever mentees:
“I cannot put into words how grateful I am for everything. The whole
experience opened up so many doors. I am now in my last year of law school, it’s been tough and has taken a lot of hard work, and I had to overcome a lot of challenges. I honestly do not think I would have continued at university or be as strong minded as I am if I had not been a part of The Girls’ Network.”
They have matched almost 2000 girls like Samantha with a professional female mentor, but there are still 150,000 girls aged 14-19 on free school meals in the UK. They have ambitious plans for 2020 and beyond, which will enable us to reach even more girls, but they’re a small team with very limited resources.
This festive season, play a part in defining the next decade by every
teenage girl flourishing regardless of background, race or parental income.
