On Saturday, 8 September, Rock Girl and the learners from Red River created some fabulous baked goods and pottery to sell at Spring Market Day sponsored by Kids Decor. The proceeds collected from their sales will go towards their school fees and the girls leadership camp scheduled for October. Best sellers were the gorgeous protea bowls that the learners made in partnership with the Light from Africa Foundation and Art in the Forest. Watch Espresso this week to see them tell more about their entrepreneurial skills!
On Friday, 1 June, India Baird spoke to the grade 4-7 learners at Reddam Atlantic School in Sea Point. Some of the Reddam students have already helped Red River paint their foundation phase classrooms and the learners have now raised R3000,00 from their weekly cake sales to donate to Rock Girl. The funds will be used for the Grade 7 Leadership Camp that the Red River girls will attend later this year. Rock Girl is honored to have been selected as a recipient of the donation from such a caring, compassionate school. Thank you Reddam!
Rock Girl is a grassroots movement to inspire, encourage, and invest in women and girls.
