How can we fit a year of thank you’s in one newsletter? Well, we can’t. But, we can fit in a few special notes of appreciation. We are often asked – how do we continue to have events, grow as an organisation and reach more and more people each year? The answer is that we have some very, very special people in the greenlight for girls’ network. Here are just a few!
On July 7th greenlight for girls hosted a fundraiser at the Royal Museum for Central Africa. We used this opportunity to fundraise for a multitude of projects including establishing a new scholarship fund for girls in DRC and to solidify the g4g headquarters in Brussels. We had a beautiful day at an amazing venue.

We would like to thank everyone you contributed and helped us to spread the message.
But it doesn't stop here! Please don't stop sending in your contributions, we will keep this campaign running as the job of spreading the message is never done!
You can still send your contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
greenlight for girls is very proud to have been part of the 10th European School Science Symposium, that happened in Laeken, at the European School Brussels IV.
The European School Science Symposium was a 2-day competition between students of European Schools from many countries, who presented very interesting scientific projects, such as a voice-activated dog jumping from its kennel, the nitrates and nitrites in cooked ham and how music students and bilingual students are better at multitasking (so, great news for the European School pupils, as they speak multiple languages!), among others.
We were there to engage students into some cool experiments – the daisy experiment, our specialty, the magic milk and the lava lamp – to show them that science is fun and that they can learn about many “mysteries of nature” just by trying some simple tricks.
Despite the heavy snow that fell in Brussels during the second day, we had an amazing time in the Science Symposium, as we could engage and entertain some very curious students (girls and boys) eager to see magic happening with the daisies, the milk and the lava lamp. We also got to meet teachers of European Schools from different countries, which helped us to spread the message of greenlight for girls to adults whose work is to be role models for children and teenagers.
Now, we can’t wait for the Science Symposium 2014!
