Girl Clubs - a new concept within Daughters of Africa!
100 sek/girl goes a long way- please join our collection here
By autumn 2019, around 360 girls will start their own small business on a small scale. A starting capital of only SEK 100/girl is needed. Some examples of what these SEK 100 covers are: seeds / sprouts for a vegetable cultivation, comb, brush + hair knots for a simple hair salon, or fabrics + other sewing accessories that help them get started with a very simple sewing business.
If you want to help with your SEK 100, click on our charitable collection here.
Many thanks in advance!
Daughters of Africa
Special project in collaboration with Hand in Hand, financed by Svenska Postkodlotteriet
Girls and young women in South Africa are affected by a certain unfortunate combination of prejudices and poverty. Their vulnerability can be measured in eg. diseases, unwanted pregnancies, rape victims and sexual exploitation. But the girls themselves feel the vulnerability in terms of broken hopes for a better future. We know. We have been working with adolescents in the region since 2005.
Within the framework of our existing holistic health promotion program in South Africa and Namibia, the project “Daughters of Africa” will contribute to innovative thinking, greater capacity and new specific efforts to strengthen the situation of teenage girls in school and their opportunities for financial independence thereafter.
Feel free to follow the project – both here on this site but also in our social channels! If you want to know more about the project or how you can contribute contact Katrin Meyer, Project Manager ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) or Patric Salmonsson, Fundraiser ( email@example.com ). </ p>
