The Future is Bright pt 2

Following on from my blog last week, one of the projects we are doing to support young women in their aspirations is working with them to make a film (if you haven’t seen the last film we made check out the “This Is Real” tab on the homepage). The film we are currently making is about young women’s hopes for their futures. We had a great day on Wednesday with the group involved doing some climbing, sharing lunch together and doing some discussion based activities to help them think about what kind of people they want to be and what they want to make of their lives. It was a real privilege hearing them share really openly about their dreams and we were really inspired by their positivity and excitement about the future despite having all faced difficulties of one sort or another in the past. Our hope is that by helping them identify these dreams and giving voice to them through the film, the girls will gain confidence and further inspiration to pursue them. We hope it will also help others to develop dreams of their own.

We look forward to sharing the film with you soon.
