Right now, one in four teenage girls in the UK is depressed. Self-harm is on the rise, and self-esteem levels for young women plummet during high school. These problems are getting worse for young women in the UK. We want to change that.

Girls Rock London believes that joy is a revolutionary force. We improve girls’ self-esteem through empowering them to make music, take up space, try new things, work together and make noise!

At our rock camps every summer, girls work together to learn an instrument, form a band, write a song and perform it at a gig…in just six days. Parents have told us that our camps are truly life-changing for their children, and now we’re looking for our first regular donors to let us reach more young women and gender non-conforming youth.

If we can raise £10,000 a year, we’ll be able to run activities all year round, changing the lives of more girls and reversing the huge drop in young women’s self-esteem.

**Help us make it happen – donate £10 a month to change a girl’s life**

 

What will I get in return for my donation?

The most important thing you will receive in return for your donation is knowing that you are part of a community that is having a real impact on the lives of girls and women in this city. Our work is life-changing and we couldn't do it without your support.

In addition, if you donate a one-off amount you will receive:

  • A specially designed thank you card illustrated by Kat Kon

If you sign up to donate monthly you will receive:

  • A specially designed thank you card illustrated by Kat Kon
  • Your name on a list of donors on our website
  • A customised thank you video from our GRL music team
  • An invitation to the girls' camp summer showcase (a private event)

 

What will my donation do?

  • £5 per month could buy resource packs for our six-week music programme, meaning girls can keep learning and making music even after camp has finished
  • £10 per month could pay for all equipment we need to hire for our six-week music programme for young women
  • £15 per month could cover 25% of a young person's place at our summer rock camp
  • £20 per month could pay for travel for eight girls who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford to go to rock camp
  • £50 per month could completely fund one girl's place on our six-week music programme

 

To ensure you receive your thank you card please check the box that says "Allow Girls Rock London to receive and use my details" when you process your payment.

To date we have run four successful rock camps, where we have seen real impact in terms of continued music-making, and increased self-esteem and confidence levels of participants.

We want to keep working with young and adult women all year-round, increasing the reach, quality and impact of our work. If we can improve a young woman’s self-esteem in six days, imagine what we can do in a year!
