A window of opportunity
There are many people who’ve said they’d pledge, but haven’t yet had a chance, so this is a window of opportunity for you (wink wink!)
I can also reveal that I had a meeting with a charitable foundation on Friday, who have promised to pledge £500 next week!
Just as the extension provides a window of opportunity to fulfil our target, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the small window of opportunity we have to change Lelo’s life.
Her caregivers do a fantastic job looking after her, but as a beautiful young girl, once capable of carrying children, she’s going to catch the eye of men – young and old alike.
That exposes her to a multitude of risks: rape, HIV, early marriage and having children before her body is ready. All things that will stand in her way of fulfilling her potential.
That’s why I feel so strongly that we use this window we’ve got: to get Lelo into a safe environment, where she’s spared the pressures of society and set on a course focused on education. That’s why I need your help now. Please keep pledging.
