On July 7th greenlight for girls hosted a fundraiser at the Royal Museum for Central Africa. We used this opportunity to fundraise for a multitude of projects including establishing a new scholarship fund for girls in DRC and to solidify the g4g headquarters in Brussels. We had a beautiful day at an amazing venue.
On a lovely Wednesday morning of June 26th , the greenlight for girls team composed of the founder Melissa Rancourt, the Global Coordinator Nevena Kostic and our two new interns Jeff and Siqi headed over to the International School of Brussels for a special meeting with Director Kevin Bartlett and his team who warmly welcomed us with coffee and pastries.
On April 27, 150 greenlighters visited the campus of the University of Massachusetts- Dartmouth to participate in the third greenlight for girls Day South Coast. This year’s event gave 10-15 year-old girls the opportunity to participate in two morning workshops and then experience “Science at UMD” in the afternoon. Working with the Kaput Center for Research and Innovation in STEM Education, this year’s greenlight for girls Day inspired girls to work hard to reach their goals.
This Wednesday, 8 May, we had the opportunity to attend the third annual Roots & Shoots ceremony at the European Parliament and meet Jane Goodall who presented the groups with their certificates and gave a special speech to all the children who are now part of a worldwide Roots and Shoots community.
