Dignity – A Free Range Chicks Initiative

Building on the wonderful success of the first 3 stages of the Dignity Project, thanks to your AMAZING support and generosity over the past 4 years, we are excited to launch the FRC Dignity Fund.

When the team first began thinking and praying about Dignity, our hearts were stirred by the terrible situation facing
teenage girls in Malawi (you can read about how the Dignity Project helps girls stay in school through sanitary provision and life education here). However, it soon became clear that the whole issue was so much wider than one country, one continent, one set of circumstances. One of the reasons Vicky Taylor chose the name the “Dignity Project”, was that we dreamed this would be the first of many more projects, both overseas and in the UK, that worked to restore dignity to women and girls.

We are so pleased that African Child Trust is continuing the work in the Phalombe District in Southern Malawi. That more girls are being resourced to complete their education, and more communities educated about the importance of keeping their daughters in school. Your generosity means that we are able to commit to continuing the project.

At the same time, we are now able to fulfill our original dream of supporting more women and girls, through the Dignity Fund.

And that`s where you come in. We would love to hear about projects, initiatives or ideas that would benefit from up to £1000 of funding (though they are welcome to apply more than once). We will only give to those that meet our criteria:

·       Provide opportunities for girls and women to flourish

·       Increase dignity, particularly for women and girls (the state or quality of being worthy of honour or respect)

·       Are in line with our core beliefs (you can find these on the website)

We will also carefully think and pray about all the applications we get before we agree to provide support, so you can be bulb-2993055_960_720reassured any money donated to Dignity will always be given to support activities that meet the intended aims of the Dignity Project.

So, if you have a dream that needs a little help to become a ministry, or know of a project in need of funding, please email beth@freerangechicks.net for an application form. If you have any questions or would like help completing it please don`t hesitate to get in touch.

We are really looking forward to hearing from you and supporting you in extending Dignity to more women and girls.
