BENEFITING: GLOBAL GRASSROOTS
EVENT DATE: Dec 31, 2015
Good things come in three's! October 2015 is two full years since we launched Resonate in Rwanda.
Now, as we start our third year, we need your help to start off strong. Resonate supports women leading change in East Africa. We believe that all women can be leaders in their lives, families, and communities. Our program combines leadership training with the power of storytelling and hands-on experience to unleash to power of women and girls to make change. We have seen incredible results so far from women like Diane, who took our professional readiness course and used her new skills to land a new job. Or women like Francine, who went through our Storytelling for Leadership course and decided that she finally had the confidence to be a community leader and run for village council. Or Elizabeth, who communicates more effectively in her work and incorporates stories into every proposal and presentation.
So far we have partnered with more than 25 organizations and businesses, trained more than 800 participants, and seen a 30% increase in participants self-confidence, comfort speaking publicly, and willingness to lead a project.
And we're just getting started. In year 3, we are getting down to business. We're raising $10,000 to run a robust training of trainer's program so that we can both deepen and broaden our impact, and support more women leading change in East Africa.
