I was shocked when I read these statistics and wanted to help:
• 60,000 more girls than boys are NEET.
• Only 33% of girls feel confident and excited about
A friend introduced me to The Girls’ Network during the planning for my charity event: Make Your Mark 2019. The charity’s ethos resonated with my own and with the tone of the event I was producing.
I was so touched by the work they do and their excitement and determination that I decided to continue as a charity partner. 5% of all my event profits are donated to The Girls’ Network, and each event whether free or paid tickets offers the opportunity for delegates to make a donation to the charity.
