This campaign has now closed. Thankyou to everyone who donated and helped us to raise over £20,000 to inspire the next generation of female leaders.

As a charity we are always grateful for new donations, if you would like to donate to our important cause click here.

The Girls’ Network has been selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2022, the UK’s largest match funding campaign. Last year, the campaign raised over £22 million for participating charities. 

Our campaign is called ‘Inspiring the next generation of leaders’ - and we want to raise £10,000 in one week!

For every £1 pledged - we can double that gift, at no extra cost to you.

The campaign is running for 7 days from 29th November 2022 and ends at 12pm on 6th December. You don’t need to make the donation before 6 December - we just need a pledge before that deadline.

Please note the donate button will only appear on our campaign page once the Christmas Challenge launches at 12 pm on the 29th of November. To be match funded all donations must go through this campaign page.

Why we need your help...

Many of the girls we work with don’t believe they can have high-status careers or achieve their ambitions, and may have only been exposed to narrow, stereotypical experiences of work. These girls face a double-disadvantage – gender inequality exacerbated by poverty. The ‘glass ceiling’ and ‘class ceiling’ hold them back, dramatically affecting their long-term prospects. The Covid-19 pandemic has further reduced the life chances of girls and young women living in areas of least advantage.A girl chatting with a mentor

We deliver a 12 month mentoring programme and offer life-long access to our Ambassador Community, through which we connect 14-19 year olds to a network of professional female role models, along with workshops, skills development opportunities and new experiences. We inspire and empower girls and young women to build their confidence and self-esteem and to develop a sense of agency. We nurture their ambitions, celebrate their achievements and encourage them to create limitless futures.

If we reach our target we can provide mentoring, workshops and activities to even more girls and young women, helping them to believe in themselves and reach for their unlimited futures. Please donate what you can - and remember every pound you donate during the campaign will be doubled at no extra cost to you.
