For our session this day, Girl Power had visitors from Netherlands 6 girls from Holy Unity Primary and 1 from Malezi primary and 2 who joined from the neighbourhood as well as coach Florence. The visitors learnt about us and what we do after which we run reminders for the girls for their holiday activities and presented Holy Unity Primary School with a net ball so that they can have their girl power sports. Previously , they had indicated they were not able to play for lack of equipment and their patron kindly requested for one which we promised to deliver this term. The ball is new and the girls were excited to have some sport equipment from us.
This month, 14 schools were visited and in the schools we had sessions with them, we had excellent interaction with the girls. This more frequency of visit has motivated the girls and teachers especially in schools where they could not get enough of us. We have been able to know some of the girls in person and who have shared their stories and fears. In some of this schools, we got to learn of many things facing the girls and this is a major step and a great indicator of the safe space and environment we have aimed to provide for this girls. It brings a whole new aspect and helps us to review and widen our ‘’lenses’’ so as to put into focus much more as we can for the girls benefit. The girls also get to know their programme ‘’drivers’’ and get used to them as opposed to seeing us fewer times  especially when we have limited staff members other than in workshops.
