Hello Kurandza Family! We are SO excited to announce that our Meet The Girls webpage is now completed and live! We finally have a place on our website where you can meet ALL of the 200+ girls (and boys) who are learning and growing in our 5 partner schools in Mozambique! From our pre-school and primary school students to our secondary students, you’ll get to see the smiley faces of the students that are so happy to be going to school! The children are grateful to our sponsors for allowing them to get an education, and we love that now you can see whose lives you are impacting! In this blog post we’ll be sharing with you why girls education is important, the impact, and a few stories of some of our girls.
We want to give you an update on how are girls are doing in the education program that was made possible from the success of our 2018 #IStandForGirls Campaign. It is thanks to all of our sponsors, donors and Giveback Partners that we were able to raise funds for 200 girls in Mozambique to go to school this year! Before we give you an update on our how our girls are doing in school, we first want to remind you why Kurandza’s main focus is on girls education.
Last week, our girls at our partner schools in Mozambique had their first day of school. For many of the girls, it was their first day of school ever and they were so excited :) We want to share a quick recap of their first day of school so you can join in with the excitement and get to know the girls a little bit better!
It’s December and that means that school is out in Mozambique! Our first group of sponsored girls (from the 2017 #IStandForGirls Campaign) just finished their first sponsored year of school! A lot of the girls finished their first year of school ever, and some of the other, older girls, finished their first year of school without difficulty.
Can you believe the holidays are already right around the corner? It’s easy to get caught up in the festive rush of Christmas shopping and the addicting buzz of Black Friday deals. But as fun as these things are, don’t forget about one of the biggest opportunities of the year to make a huge difference with where you choose to spend your money.
In the states, we’re in the midst of the hustle and bustle of a brand new school year. But for our girls in Mozambique, the school year is winding down in November. Since their school year runs from February to November, all of the girls the Kurandza community supported through the 2017 #IStandForGirls campaign are just about finished with their school year - their first one ever for many of them!
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE #ISTANDFORGIRLS CAMPAIGN!
It’s almost that time again! Our 2018 #IStandForGirls campaign is coming up quickly and we’re so excited for what this year’s campaign has in store. If you were around last year, you’ll know that this is our second campaign and with the success of our first one (you sent more than 100 girls to school!) we’re dreaming big this year too!
In early February, our girls at our partner schools in Mozambique had their first day of school. For many of the girls, it was their first day of school ever and there was a tangible feeling of excitement in the air. We want to share a quick recap of their first day of school so you can join in with the excitement and get to know the girls a little bit better!
