Giving Tuesday is here!
Today, at the Forefront is hosting a virtual fundraiser featuring artists Namatsi Lukoye, Twatasha Kabwe, Andrew Ngatia to support the Girls of Color (GOC) Project launching in 2021.
With the GOC Project, we aim to respond to global disparities girls of color face in gaining access to quality education, career-building opportunities, mentoring, and provide platforms encouraging them to uplift their voices. The GOC project will equip youth to strategize solutions to prevent and respond to the heightened risk of gender-based violence, teenage pregnancy, and mental health challenges, exacerbated by COVID-19 isolation measures.
Participate in the virtual fundraiser live on Zoom at 2:30pm GMT on December 1 here

If you’re unable to attend the virtual fundraiser, you can donate to our GoFundMe here (don't forget to indicate "GOC" with your donation)
