Alone Together for One Girl Can
Amid the COVID-19 crisis, countries like Kenya have experienced unprecedented school closures. Many girls and women may be overburdened by being a caregiver for their families and facing growing domestic violence. The limited gains made in past decades toward gender equality are at risk of being rolled back.
This is why One Girl Can is all the more focused on their commitment to breaking the cycle of poverty and impacting gender equality through education and mentorship. With this in mind, the organization has adapted their original IWANTtoBE fundraiser – initially scheduled to take place in April at Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom – to a global virtual event, where anyone in the world can join.
