Over the next 6 months these girls will take part in monthly events addressing challenges that they face. Each girl will be paired with a female mentor who will be a positive role model for them over the course of the project. Together they will embark on an important journey and build a trusting relationship as mentor and mentee. As we write we are still in the early stages of this project and already the girls have been wonderful - getting involved and throwing themselves into all challenges, including building a large raft and getting stranded in a lake!
Gorton is an area that Reclaim is proud to return to.

Watch this space for news of how these young women will develop and make a seriously important difference in their community.
