Friends of GirlBe,
I’m writing to inform you that 2018 is a year of transition for GirlBe. We are in a process of streamlining our programs in order to serve our communities better. Therefore, we will gradually change location from Kansanga to Kalangala Island, a serene natural environment, approximately five hours away from the capital Kampala. Please be reminded that we are in this together. We need You.
We are going to build GirlBe Academy, a healing and teaching program, where young mothers will be nurtured to enable them to reconnect, mend their fractured pasts and redefine their destiny. The objective of GirlBe Academy is to facilitate young mothers’ restoration of self away from the pressure of everyday life.
Uganda is noted to be among the countries with the most number of young mothers in sub-saharan Africa. According to the population secretariat, there are 1.2 million pregnancies per year of which 25% are young mothers. Most centers for young mothers only provide basic maternal health. However, we intend to serve them beyond that.
GirlBe Academy is an intensive creative residential program, fully dedicated to offering both deep intimate healing processes and employable skill development for young mothers in Uganda.
Now, this is not small. And that is exactly why we need you. There are so many duties and responsibilities for us to be able to bring GirlBe Academy to life. Whether carrying stones on site, designing curriculum, developing partnerships, doing administration or simply cheering us up. We need You!
Are you the one or do you know someone? If so, please send us your CV and your brief motivation letter to firstname.lastname@example.org
A lot of Gratitude To You,
Manager GirlBe Academy
