‘Where she was to where she is now: Celebrating the Women and Girls Initiative’ is an animated film produced as part of the Women and Girls Initiative (WGI) Learning and Impact Services and funded by The National Lottery Community Fund. Made by Leeds Animation Workshop, the film shares words and drawings from women and girls supported by, and working for, WGI projects. Projects were funded to offer flexible, holistic support and the film illustrates the difference that specialist services for women and girls can make. It gives a moving insight into how important the Initiative has been in helping projects support women and girls to grow.
‘Where she was, to where she is now’ would be of interest to:
- organisations working with women and girls;
- policy-makers and commissioners, as it shares insights on how women and girls can best be supported; and
- anyone else considering supporting or finding out more about specialist work with women and girls.
Information in the film is drawn from the Women and Girls Initiative, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund (The Fund). It is supporting 62 projects with funds raised from The National Lottery.
