Sponsorship update -Everline
As our founding members will of remember, our fundraising efforts at the launch of Women in Compliance allowed us to sponsor a young girl in Africa, Everline to go to school for 5 years – allowing her the opportunity to gain a good education. We received a wonderful letter from her recently – its seems she is progressing well, and it is so wonderful that we have been able to make a difference in her life.
This sponsorship was organised by our very own Kathryn Bartholomew – thank you Kathryn and everyone that contributed and supported this initiative.
We are already looking forward to the next letter from this lovely girl and will be sure to update you once we do! If you have a message for Everline, do get in touch and we’ll be sure to pass it on!
The Women in Compliance group has helped me beat ‘imposter syndrome’ – it’s a feeling many of us women know well!
