  • Need

    Need

    Following the Brexit and the current situation around the world, the younger generation are feeling very detached from one another. We are all one. We are humans. I know from my experience there are people out there who do want to help each other. We need to bring them together around a common goal and we can share our skills and time and help ourselves and others.

    Solution

    It aims to create a movement whereby women no matter your background, ethnicity, race, income feel equal. I am speaking at Schools at the moment about my story and the number of girls who want to be involved is amazing, they just don't know how to be. We are so lucky to have such a diverse range of people in the UK, why not bring us all together and make a difference to others and the wider world.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    A new generation of giving: Inspiring young women to make a difference.

    Activities

    » Create an online forum encouraging girls to join / schools / social media campaign to reach out to people.
    » Hold an event to bring skilled girls together and bounce ideas off one another, role models etc
    » Carry out workshops in schools promoting social entrepreneurship.

    Number of people coming together.
    Measure the social impact on the ground in the UK - number of people reached and effected and in Malawi.


  • Impact

    Impact

    Making positive changes to the way women think and society in general. We are all equal, just some of us born into different geographical locations. For example if one of the girls says where she lives there is no community centre and lots of young people having nothing to do in UK. The group could come together, volunteer their time and skills, share their contacts and together with the help of businesses offering their support build a community centre.

    Risk

    Risks would not be having enough people on board with the idea and it just becoming a group of women who talk the talk but can't walk the walk. However, I have already carried out a pilot study in a couple of Schools and I know the demand is there. We would just need enough time to be able to lead the movement, and the resources such as a CRM to ensure we can maintain our contacts.

    Reporting

    Social impact reports. It is a movement we are creating. We expect to get press exposure, a big online presence, donors have to be able to see it with their own eyes the difference we are making.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    I have spent the last eight years working with vulnerable people in Africa. I am 26 and have gone through so much in my own life that I know I have been given a gift whereby I can inspire people to believe in themselves and make a difference. We have the knowledge, the passion and age is on my side as people can relate to me.
