We are inspired by the girls and young women who challenge us to respond to their needs in the areas of
Biodiversity and Climate Change
These needs arise specifically from the patriarchal attitudes that ‘put them in their place’ and do not recognize their voice and agency. It takes a lot of time, resources, programming, surprises and flexibility as we go, to counteract the environment that girls grow up in in South Africa. We are pleased to see young leadership emerging to meet their ever-evolving needs and challenges.
