Asante. Gracias. Merçi. THANK YOU!

This holiday season, we’re thankful for the brave young women in our Girls Voices program. As we near the end of the year, our participants are sharing what they’ve learned through the program, what their future plans are, and how the Girls’ Voices for Change contest changed their lives.

The participants from the Ngora Girls’ School in Uganda hosted an exhibition for their community, showcasing their projects and speaking about the new media skills they are now equipped with. In attendance, were other students, staff, and Parent Teachers Association members, who distributed certifications to the girls.

In addition to their newfound media skills, the girls from the Ngora School say that they’ve found confidence and the courage to use their voices to elevate their communities.

Lorena from Puerta 18 in Argentina says that Girls’ Voices helped her find herself and who she wanted to be. Your donations are helping Lorena continue her education.

The girls from iEARN Kenya wrote a poem to express their gratitude. They say being part of this program made them feel strong and safe.

Catalina is a contest winner and thanks to her scholarship prize, she started her studies in AGRA (Association of Graphic Reporters of the Argentine Republic). She is growing as a photographer, and learning lot, always taking photos that showcase the plight for women’s rights. This year, she was a judge for the photography category in this year’s contest. That was a huge challenge and honor for her because she expanded her commitment by helping other girls.

Thanks to your unwavering support these girls are ready to take on the world and ready to lead others with them!
