We are excited to announce that we were awarded our first grant from the Stone Family Foundation, which is dedicated to the education of girls and women living in developing countries. The grant will cover the costs of our in-school programs and provide us with the funds to start a sewing project for young mothers. It will also allow us to pay our local staff who have been working as volunteers and hire our first full-time staff member!
This support comes at a vital time for Girl Up as we strive to grow and expand our programs in Kampala. From all of us at Girl Up, thank you Stone Family Foundation for believing in our mission to empower young women and girls with the educational and economic opportunities needed to succeed and blossom!
