Afrikan Goddess awards ceremony in Washington DC, USA: 9 June
Launching of Girl Child Network USA Chapter in Los Angeles
After some two years of hard work with young men and women in Los Angeles, they have finally registered GCN USA and it is an organisation they are strengthening now now. I am so delighted with this latest development as it means our efforts to mobilise support for girls is getting stronger by the day. I am doing everything possible to transition my leadership to GCN USA so that all fundraising projects initiated in USA are managed directly in the country. The more we decentralise and build more networks the more the world helps girls more effectively and efficiently. Many hands make the work easier.
Below is news via their Facebook group page and announcement of their development. On 11 to 12 June I will be in Los Angeles training the youths as well as ensuring systems are in place to set up the Girls Empowerment and Education Fund.
Below is a press release from GCN USA
Welcome to the Girl Child Network United States. Still in its founding year, the GCNUSA is a developing organization in need of membership and filling out of various leadership positions. Our intention is to create a US based organization that can publicize and fundraise for the Girl Child Network Worldwide within the United States. According to our 5 year plan, we intend to have the capacity to fully fund numerous projects of the GCN in Zimbabwe and Africa. Our goal is to educate and empower the exploited youth in Zimbawe and provide them with the opportunity to grow in their respective communities. The organziation was jointly founded by Gabe Gilbert-Lurie, Ameek Shokar and Alec Eginli. If you have been added to this group then you were recommended by at least one of our board members or Betty Makoni to serve this organization in some capacity.
