Chula provides skills-based workshops to allow our beneficiaries to experience new opportunities, build on their learning and encourage them to use their education to make a positive impact in the world.
Chula connect girls from all over the world to educate one another about their lives, experiences and their communities.
Together, they are able to learn more about global issues surrounding gender inequality and work together to use their voices to make a change!
Chula gives our girls the chance to discover new interests and passions, providing a safe-space where they can build friendships, try new skills and learn to believe in how truly fantastic they really are.

WHAT WE DO
We run a variety of workshops from engaging with specialists in gender empowerment to tackle gender stereotypes, to joining in with park fun runs and cooking classes. Each workshop is centered around cooperation, collaboration and empowerment and allows our beneficiaries to get out of their communities and experience that they otherwise would never experience.
By allowing women to explore their capabilities, we empower them to believe in themselves.

WHAT WE DO
In a rural village in the Usambara mountains, the Chula project provides a safe-space for 16 girls. Every Saturday, the girls complete fun and engaging activities to learn about gender equality, They have chance to speak and learn English and also partake in our computer club.
Thanks to our fundraising, we can provide our girls with a healthy breakfast and lunch each Saturday. Besides, each of our girls has been provided with a pack of re-usable sanitary pads (made by local women) and a pack of knickers.
The girls in the community we work with are extremely vulnerable to early marriage or pregnancy, sometimes from the age of just 12. By supporting them to attend the project, we aim to keep them focused on their education, offer them skills for future employment. We hope that they will become role models for other girls in their community.
We are so happy for the chance for our girls to learn with Chula
We are so pleased that our girls will have the chance to learn and speak English
The girls do not complete education because:
They get pregnant
Parents think that girls are not important to educate
Parents give priority to a boy's education
