Last spring, Team Catherine Nicole gathered encouraging letters from friends and family to be sent to BRAC’s Empowerment and Livlihood for Adolescent (ELA) programme center in Uganda. They went something like this…
Hi girls, I’m Catherine Cottingham, and I have my own jewelry business in Texas, USA. I am very impressed by BRAC and its Girl Centers, and I am happy that you have a place where you learn and are amongst other strong women like yourself. Keep up the good work! Sincerely, Catherine
This year, the letter writing campaign is back! We hope to send even more encouraging notes this time, so this is where you (our readers) come in. Write something short and sweet, and we’ll send it to those amazing girls that are working hard to improve their lives and their communities. These can be sent to email@example.com, (we will copy it onto notecards with just your first name) or send them to PO box 141563, Austin TX 78745.
So, to put a face to these girls, here’s Else. She’s 13 years old and part of BRAC’s Empowerment and Livelihoods for Adolescents program.

We hope you’ll join us in our effort to let these girls know that we’re thinking of them and confident in their abilities to do great things.
