The Girl Child Network Worldwide (GCNW) has launched a T-shirt fundraising campaign to support its activities.
The organization founded and headed by Muzvare-Princess Betty Makoni, champions the rights of the girl child globally. It also supports needy girls to obtain education.
The UK-based GCNW believes that girls can excel and reach their potential as women leaders if their rights, empowerment and education are fully supported and promoted.
The newly produced beautiful T-shirts echo the organisation’s key messages: “Empowering girls, Powering nations”; “Books First, Babies Later. Smart Girls Pursue Education”.
Each T-shirt costs £12 inclusive of postage to all parts of the UK.
You can support the GCNW by logging onto Charity Checkout (CLICK HERE) and ordering your T-shirts. This is also the safest way to donate to the charity.
You can also donate £12 for each T-shirt directly via the Girl Child Network Worldwide Charity Bank account with Lloyds Bank

Muzvare-Princess Makoni says seeing young girls getting married saddens her.
She recalls seeing girls aged 13 getting married in Zimbabwe. “What scared me more were girls of this age who gave birth. Most parents gave the excuse that the girls wanted to get married. This is child abuse,” says Muzvare-Princess Makoni.
She advices young girls to focus on their education. “Put books first. As you mature like me you will understand life better. At age 13 you are babies. Refuse to do the babies.”
GCNW has supported more than 300,000 girls through girls clubs in Zimbabwe and several other African countries.
“Support girls reach their potential, support their dreams. Don’t marry kids. Let’s support girls to be women leaders,” says Muzvare-Princess Makoni.
