We believe every girl and woman should enjoy the freedom to flourish. By supporting and campaigning for health and education initiatives, we exist to empower women to secure better chances in learning, vocation and life.
Dignity is the state or quality of being worthy of honour or respect. It is one of the primary words in the first article of the universal declaration of human rights.
The Dignity project would like to help girls in regions and countries who suffer in silence over the lack of menstruation hygiene provision and effective solutions. We campaign to bring awareness through the media, create educational materials and initiate ongoing fundraising ideas.
We're starting by supporting girls at 4 different schools in Southern Malawi: Nyezerera, Namphungo, Khombwe and Hope Village. We're working in partnership with the African Child Trust, Builders House and GILEP (Girls In Leadership Empowerment Programme).
The Dignity project is a social action expression of the Free Range Chicks network. Free Range Chicks connects women with life-growing and life-changing opportunities, resources and relationships. Find out more on our website.
The Dignity project is partnered with the African Child Trust (ACT) who exist to support the education of disadvantaged children and orphans in Africa.
Pastor Abby Olufeyimi first heard about the needs of the Malawian girl child in November 2013 whilst visiting the ACT children her church 'The Builders House' sponsor. Since returning, her church have fundraised through their annual STOMP in Croydon and other activities to support and raise funds for girls toilets.
We partner with Days for Girls who distribute feminine hygiene kits and drive awareness of the issue and help different communities to start their own programs.
