Yoga Charity Event @ AYF Saturday 18th Oct

Comments

66 million girls around the world are not in school.

Simply because they were born a girl.

Wear a school dress. Change this. 

Join us on Saturday 18th October 2014

3pm - 4.30pm @ Adelaide Yoga Flow

 

This event at Adelaide Yoga Flow is an opportunity for the local community to come together for one afternoon in October.

 

All it takes is a school dress, some yoga moves and a desire to help others less fortunate.

 

Established in 2009, One Girl is the brainchild of two Melbourne-based social-entrepreneurs, Chantelle Baxter and David Dixon. The pair started the non-profit organisation after a research trip through Africa ignited their passion for girls’ education.

 

 

Why girls? Why Sierra Leone?

If you’re born a girl in Sierra Leone, the odds are stacked against you.

Sierra Leone is considered one of the worst places in the world to be born a girl and there are many challenges girls face when it comes to accessing education.

The facts:

At One Girl, we believe that when you educate a girl, she can change her world.

We are on a mission to educate 1 million girls across Africa by 2020. That’s where Do It In A Dress comes in.

So far, the Do It In A Dress campaign has raised $650,000 and funded:

  • Supported 200 girls through education scholarships

  • Trained 78 girls in small business skills

  • Provided access to affordable, biodegradable sanitary pads to over 1,200 women and girls

  • Funded the construction of a toilet block through our school awesomeisation project

  • We’ve almost finished building our first school which will benefit over 250 boys and girls

It will feature 1 hour of yoga practice, music and some delicious treats and refreshments.
