Are focussed on empowering women and girls so that they can create and lead change in their communities. One Girl believes that education and economic empowerment are vital when it comes to tackling the issues that women and girls face in Sierra Leone. One Girl currently have two projects we’re working on, Back to School Scholarships and LaunchPad.
Back to School Scholarships
One Girl provides education scholarships to girls living in rural communities in Sierra Leone. Back to School scholarships provide a girl with everything she needs to attend school. Her school fees will be paid in full, plus she’ll receive a school uniform, school books and stationary. One Girl also includes a medical contingency in case she gets sick!
To address this issue, we’ve created LaunchPad : A social enterprise that sells low cost, eco-friendly sanitary pads to women and girls in Sierra Leone.
