The prestigious British Asian Trust (BAT) are currently running ‘Give a Girl a Future’ appeal ….writes Richa Grover
‘Give a Girl a Future’ is an ambitious appeal through which BAT will transform the lives of tens of thousands of girls, women and their families by ensuring they can learn the skills and gain the confidence to work. Of course, this isn’t just about skills training it’s about hope, dignity, and a future to look forward to.
The appeal aims to raise £5 million before 7 December to support the transformational work of The British Asian Trust across South Asia. Every pound donated from UK individuals during this period will be matched with the Department for International Development and will support work to unlock the potential of young women living in poverty.
There are so many ways of supporting the appeal:
- Make a donation– anything you are able to give would mean so much to BAT
- Share their social media messages on Facebookand Twitter – look out for exciting ways to celebrate Diwali with them !
- Sign a team up to our excitingChainge16cycle at the Olympic Velodrome on 19 November
- They would love to hear from you if you have other ideas about how you could help them to give girls and women in South Asia a better future
