The list of 2012 Mentors and mentees of Rural Girl Child Mentorship Uganda (RGCM Uganda) project

Charli B, Reading her letter from Nyaburu Anna

2012 Mentors and Mentees are here, the mission of Rural Girl Child Mentorship Uganda (RGCM Uganda) is being fulfilled.
Rural Girl Child Mentorship Uganda (RGCM Uganda), a project under a grassroots NGO– Pearl Community Empowerment Foundation (PCE-Foundation), is a one on one girl-to-mentor project aimed at empowering Ugandan girls through financial assistance for continued education, shared knowledge and wisdom, and creative thinking. Each rural Ugandan girl is connected to a mentor who helps nurture their vision for a brighter future.

PCE-Foundation is a national grassroots Not for Profit Organization operating under the legal instruments governing NGOs in Uganda. It is registered under REG NO: S.5914/9510, currently operating in Eastern Uganda.

It was a struggle finding only 40 girls in a community of over 1000 households. In my OWN village of over 300 household we found ONLY 7 girls, the rest got married and already pregnant, with children (because I wanted to pull them off their marriages - knowing the impact of education and especially to and from the girls of my own village).

Today we have 38 mentors from Australia, United Kingdom and the United States. Isn't it amazing?!.
Some of the mentors have already got the first letters from the girls.

"Received a letter from Nyaburu Anna yesterday, so beautifully written. She wants to be a doctor. I'm sure she will be a great doctor and leader. I can't wait to meet you Anna! Thank you Beatrice for bringing her into my life" says Charli Bass

We are thankful for World Pulse media platform for giving a channel for raising my voice and above all, helping us channel our passion and dream.

Allow me thank and congratulate the 37mentors from across the globe for having chosen to mentor a rural Ugandan girl through RGCM Uganda project, for having trusted me with their time and money to mentor and educate the following girls of my community;
