Good Causes - The Chrysalis Youth Empowerment Network
Chrysalis is a secondary school in Northern Uganda with a strong focus on female empowerment. Caroline and Nick (the company directors and founders) currently sponsor two of the girls who attend this school.
Following the success of our "International Women's Day" (IWD) minifigs and the amount of money we had been able to loan out through Kiva, we started to look at other good causes we could support linked to empowering women and girls. We decided that the Chrysalis Youth Empowerment Network would be perfect for this.
In 2021, we donated £750 to the school as a whole, and sent them around £700 worth of LEGO.
Here is Jacob, working with the STEM LEGO sets we sent to them.
We're committed to ongoing support for the school so they can plan for the future, including a £750 quarterly donation and paying the school fees for two students. We'd love it if you consider sponsoring as well - there are always more girls waiting for the chance to attend school, and the personal connection to the students creates a rewarding experience for sponsors too. Please take a look at the work they do here.
