ORGANISERS of “A Young Lady with Heart 2016” call on teachers and pupils to nominate Grade 11 girls who are making a difference at their school and in their community. “When you nominate a young lady for this campaign, you not only acknowledge her contribution, you encourage and empower her to continue to make a difference,” said the organisers. The organisers found that a visit to the school encourages the other younger girls to think about getting more involved in their school and community. Young Lady with Heart 2015 winner, Tara Oldfield of St John’s DSG shared what the campaign meant to her. “Through this experience I have learnt so much about myself and the other young ladies in our community. I now have 19 new friends, and know that these are lifelong bonds that have been formed. “I enjoyed the interviews and was inspired by the wonderful mentors and other girls. The outreach project was an eye-opener and while it was sad to see such poverty first-hand, I have faith that we will be able to make a change in this world. I am grateful for the seed of giving that was sown in our lives,” she said. Tara will address her school assembly next week to encourage her school to once again nominate and encourages other schools to participate in the campaign. The organisers can be contacted to do a free presentation at school assemblies. - SuppliedNomination forms can be downloaded from www.justboutique.net or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org The public can follow the campaign on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
