“If education lights a fire in a girls’ world, mentoring is the fuel that allows that fire to keep burning, and to light candles for everyone around her.”
Education on its own is wonderful. We give women and girls the skills to do a task and do it well. It allows them to do something simple, and improve their day-to-day existence. When education is paired with mentoring, we give women and girls the tools and resilience to adapt the skills they learn to every new situation that they face, to be leaders in their own lives and to be role models for others in their families and communities.
If education lights a fire in a girls’ world, mentoring is the fuel that allows that fire to keep burning, and to light candles for everyone around her. This is why we incorporate mentoring in all of our projects. Thanks to our generous donors, we raised an amazing £49,846 at the WONDER Ball this year. Together, we will be lighting many candles for women and girls around the world.
