As part of my 50th birthday celebrations I am raising funds for my Empower Her Project - mobilising girls to fulfil their potential.
Girls in Uganda face challenges that are widely acknowledged worldwide. 50% of girls in Africa are sexually enslaved, out of school and might not live beyond 34 years due to poverty, HIV and AIDS and violence.
Singing Gorilla Empower Her Project will be set up to provide girls with the tools and knowledge they need to preserve their optimism, restore their confidence and create a better world.
Funds raised from this event will purchase hand cranked sewing machines which will be used by the girls of the project to generate income.
