Summary of activities

Through the support.Over 2017 the Alumni program was developed further, being driven by the Alumni themselves, as they elected their own National and Regional Executives to lead them. The Alumni program aims to establish more pathways for future success and creates the space for the scholarship girls to work towards shared goals. This year the Alumni members opened a bank account and started a soap business to begin earning profits which they could invest back into the group to fund their activities. With the support of the One Girl Sierra Leone team, the members also have access for volunteer and internship positions for their career development.The Business Brains program grew rapidly to provide training to 8,658 students (both girls and boys) in Sierra Leone and Uganda 220 girls and young women received business and entrepreneurial training. In Sierra Leone, 77% of girls reported that the training had resulted in an increase of their overall income, enabling them to better take care of themselves and their families. As part of the Business Brains project this year One Girl facilitated a series of Inter-generational Dialogue Meetings in every community where there was a Girls Club. These brought together key members of the community, including parents and guardians, local elders, school staff, health workers, and the Girls Club members themselves. During these meetings, Club members are given the opportunity some for the very first time to highlight the unique problems they face as girls in their communities. Working together as a collective, solutions to these problems are discussed and worked on at a community level. Both community members and Girls Club members have expressed appreciation for these meetings, and have also already reported seeing significant improvements as a result of these meetings.The School Awesomisation project successfully completed two water, health and sanitation (WASH) projects in two rural Sierra Leone schools: one in a primary school, and one in a secondary school. As part of these projects seven toilet blocks were constructed with a total of 18 drop hole latrines, as well as hand dug wells to establish a water source alongside the toilets. As part of these projects, students and staff at both schools were educated on the importance of WASH at school and at home.Through the LaunchPad program, 20 brand new LaunchPad Champions were trained, from 10 secondary schools (two Champions per school) in both the capital, Freetown, and the Tonkolili district in Sierra Leone. One Girl also added another ten communities to the LaunchPad program, training 20 new community Champions (two Champions per community).In Uganda, One Girl worked with local organisation Bulogo Womens Group to pilot a program focusing on One Girl Clubs: creating an environment where girls and boys learn together and participate in discussions on topics.
