“I admit that sometimes I even think that this social distancing has brought us closer to the empathy and responsibility of becoming a united movement of strength, energy and inspiration for the families and communities that live outside the Academy with their challenges, which have become much more global than local.”
Our program CHANGE has INNOVATED once again and this time the innovation is called CHANGEMAKER LAB. A ‘LAB’ to create and test solutions to respond to global challenges that Mozambique faces.
Girl MOVE Academy took part in a Webinar organized by Population Council on the theme “Adaptations in Crisis: Stress Testing our Intentional Design Model for Girls”, alongside organizations from all around the world.
We taught our Mwarusis our distancing from crowds dance and together we danced in a space so safe that the only noise that could be heard was the connection of our voices. We taught them how to make D.I.Y. masks that they can donate to their families, in case of it being necessary to go out to get essentials.
Educate to co-create, to empower talents and lead for common welfare. In the Girl Move’s methodology there is an imperative concept that covers Believe, Lead and Change programs and that connects them: cascade mentorship, set on the importance and impact that reference models have if we want to create and develop a systemic change.
National and International Girl Movers and Change Makers tell stories of transformation into an event marked by strong emotions and diversity. Different Stories Coming Together as One might have been a kind of closing ceremony for Class 4 Life Stages but it turned out to be more than that. A lot more!
