Olivia commented on 'Fire Up!' - A Refugee-Run Girls Education Programme

Hello Robert,

I think this is a great idea! I would be interested to know how you plan on training the mentors to communicate with the girls' families, so that they are trained to deal with the social barriers that you mentioned many girls face when persuing an education? For example the belief some families may have that education is a burden to their daughters/themselves. Also how will the mentors be trained in providing the emotional suppot you mentioned was lacking?

I was also wondering how the collaboration between parents to save money will work? Will that be monitored by you, or will the parents be more independent from the project?

Thank you for anwering my questions, and for persuing this wonderful, important project!!
