We have had our hands full at GEM this month as we prepared to launch our 2014/2015 mentorship program.
Some of the highlights….
There were over 60 strong applicants and Rebecca and I interviewed 35 girls over the course of two weeks. This year we can only accept 30 girls to participate in the program. We want to thank everyone who applied to GEM and whenever possible we will invite all applicants to our workshops and coffee chats.
I promise, we will continue to raise awareness and money so that next year we can provide mentorship opportunities to more girls.
Aga Khan Museum Opening
Our partners, the Aga Khan Museum, also opened its doors this month. It is an honour and a pleasure to work with such an innovative and inspiring organization!
Most importantly, the program would not be launching without an exceptional team. Thank you to GEM’s fabulous board, project manager, three interns and two volunteers for all your hard work!
October is going to be an incredible month… Stay tuned because we have tons of surprises up our sleeves!
