Red:GLOW Kick-off

Wednesday, November 21, 2018

We're delighted to announce the establishment of the Red:GLOW network. Earlier this week, partners came together in London to share ideas for empowering disadvantaged young women and planning our work for the next two years.

Wonder Foundation, building on the work we have done with European partners over the last several years, has been awarded an EU Erasmus+ grant to develop our work and network over the next two years. Red:GLOW is a European partnership project that aims to strengthen a network of seven like-minded NGOs across the EU (North, South, East and West) so that they can become AGENTS OF CHANGE. 

Working with local partners in the UK, Spain, Slovenia, Poland, Latvia and Italy, the initiative will promote active citizenship and build skills for work for around 1,000 disadvantaged young women.

Our network - Red:GLOW- stands for Gender, Leadership, Outreach and Work, with Red meaning 'network' in Spanish. The work that we do through the network will develop young women and youth workers' understanding of the links between citizenship attitudes, skills and behaviours and those for employment, and we will expand on this concept throughout the project. 

We will develop leadership and volunteering programmes in each country to develop skills and attitudes linked to citizenship and active participation. Each young woman will receive support from a mentor, and we will be working with these mentors and youth workers to improve their ability to support these young women to transform their lives.

The materials we create will be widely shared - including on this website - so keep in touch to find out more!
