We are thrilled to officially launch a campaign in partnership with One Day’s Wages to support Heshima Kenya’s Girls’ Empowerment Project.
Refugee girls, forced to flee their home countries, are at particularly high risk of neglect, abuse and exploitation. The majority of refugee girls do not have access to basic healthcare and education, and suffer from lack of support from families or guardians. The Girls’ Empowerment Project is an oasis of peace, stability and hope, and provides safety and community. The life-long transferable skills learned in the GEP ultimately lead to self-sufficiency and opportunities for refugee girls to thrive and lead in their communities.
The Girls’ Empowerment Project has reached its capacity and currently has 50 girls on the waiting list. In order to help us move into a larger facility, our friends at One Day’s Wages have issued a challenge. They will match each and every donation made on their website up to $15,000 to support 30 young women to join our Girls’ Empowerment Project!
We are honored to receive support from One Day’s Wages, a grassroots movement dedicated to investing in people and communities around the world, striving to inspire people with enhanced awareness and the opportunity to give simply to support sustainable relief, and collectively generating a powerful positive impact.
We cannot achieve our goal without you and your commitment to supporting the ongoing education and empowerment of the young refugee women and girls eager to enroll in the Girls’ Empowerment Project. We look forward to working together to achieve our goal! Click here to contribute to our campaign.
From the Heshima Kenya family to you – thank you!
