A powerful initiative for young girls, Strive has empowered over 100 at-risk girls since 2013 to make positive life choices.
From families of intergenerational unemployment, the girls start to believe they don’t bring value to the outside world so “what’s the point of trying". Pat Hall and staff at Liverpool Neighbourhood Connections changes their mindset.
Strive invites the girls on a journey to be the change in their community. To stand up to injustice, to take pride in hard work and to empower others to do the same.
Designed to guide girls safely through Year 7-10, Strive is an opportunity to learn new skills like coding and self-defence, stay engaged with education and have fun.
FUNDING TARGET $33,000
- $1000 funds a new educational excursion experience for the girls
- $100 will supply equipment and resources to learn a new skill (eg. coding or self-defence)
- $50 will supply afternoon tea for 15 girls
