South Banbury Meeting – CANCELLED DUE TO HEAVY SNOW
11th December, 2017 @ 10:00 - 12:00
THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED DUE TO HEAVY SNOW. WE APOLOGISE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.
Three years ago, Kate Prinsep visited Uganda for the first time, building links with a particular school. That visit, and the amazing teachers and children she met there had a strong impact on her. In particular, for girls growing up there, life presents many challenges – physically, educationally and emotionally.
And despite those hardships, those girls develop into astonishing, inspiring women, making a significant contribution in their own communities.
In this presentation, Kate will share what she’s learned about the spirit, tenacity and sheer determination of those incredible women, and how the charity she co-founded, Gift Of A Future, is creating opportunities for the current generation of girls to have their own powerful impact.
Kate is co-founder of Gift of a Future, and in the final year of her doctorate, researching into the impact of scholarships on girls in Uganda. Formerly a Chemistry teacher in Gloucester, she is now a private tutor for A Level Chemistry for girls in Oxfordshire. All of these support her goal of helping young women to overcome challenges and to have an impact in the world.
