YOUR MONTHLY RESOURCE_ 

This month, we share some ways that you can work effectively from home and maintain a healthy work-life balance.

Whether you’re working from home, home schooling, catching up on lectures or working remotely for other reasons, it can be quite the adjustment from a classroom or office setting.

Although working remotely gives you lots of flexibility, it’s important that you have the right working space, mind frame and routine in place.

YOUR STORIES_

This month on the blog we hear from 2020 Diana Award recipients, Sakiya and Nishka.  

Coming from a community that is affected by Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), Sakiya has been a passionate anti-FGM activist for 10 years. Her work involves delivering peer education workshops on FGM and other forms of gender-based violence in schools. 

We also hear from 2020 Diana Award recipient Nishka, a 15-year-old who over the last two and a half years, has designed and delivered coding workshops with 1,000 young people in her pursuit to open more doors for girls who dream of a career in STEM.
