Empowering Girls with Mobile breakfast panel

Screenshot 2019-03-14 at 14.50.32.pngLast week I hosted a breakfast panel launching Girl Effect and Vodafone Foundation’s  #girlsandmobile research to the development community! The event was a preview of one of the biggest studies ever conducted on girls and mobile. Later that day I had the pleasure of participating in the public launch at the Social Good Summit, where 16-year old filmmaker Zuriel Oduwole introduced the report with a fantastic presentation that had us all on our feet!

Springster partners with Nutritional International

Less than a year after launching as a global brand Springster has landed, it’s first big donor partnership. Over the next two years, we will be working with the amazing Canadian non-profit Nutritional international to target malnutrition among adolescent girls in Indonesia using our thriving mobile community.

We all gathered at the Canadian Embassy recently for the launch of the partnership

In recognition of Nelson Mandela’s upcoming 94th birthday, GlobalGrind put together a video series documenting how ‘Born Frees’ experience freedom in New York. I was one of the ‘Born Frees’ interviewed. Sharing my love for my country and gratitude for the legacy he has left, was an honour!
