But they are on a waiting list to join, waiting for a unit to open near them or for volunteers to be trained to support them. With more resources, more girls can get access to experiences and support to help them achieve their potential too. By donating to GirlGuiding NZ you are investing in girls, now and in the future. That means that you will give more girls the opportunities and support that Molly, Liz and Lara had.
Molly Barker is 17 years old and a passionate Guiding member. For over 10 years she has been a member, starting as a Brownie when she was seven. Molly has moved up through the units, and now even volunteers herself at a Guide unit to support other girls to have the opportunities and experiences that she has had.
Lara was a Brownie and Guide in South Africa and is now a partner at PwC in Auckland. Lara is at the peak of her career and thanks Guiding to her success. Sisterhood, sense of belonging, leadership and community involvement are key lessons she still uses today.
Liz is approaching retirement after a successful career as a Chartered Accountant and Company Director. Liz believes that she got her first break, as a partner in a prestige accounting firm in New Zealand, and then onto an international role in London, because of her experience in governance at GirlGuiding NZ, and internationally.
Donations will help in so many ways, from recruiting and training volunteer leaders, through helping new units get off the ground, to developing exciting new activities. You’ll be giving girls the chance to make friends, learn skills and discover their potential. You’re growing a new generation of strong women.
With thanks to four investors, your donation will be 100% matched dollar for dollar. But the investors’ pot of donations is only released once we raise $5000 from other donors between 1 to 18 December. So please, Give Big this Christmas. Help us get to $5000 and then your donation will be 100% matched!
