“The organisation I work for has just launched a very exciting new project called Leading Lights which I have the pleasure of running! Ormiston Trust, in conjunction with Trinity House, the Honourable Company of Master Mariners (HCMM) and the Association of Sail Training Organisations (ASTO), have set up a project with the aim of inspiring girls to recognise that they can achieve more for their futures. As their aspirations increase, they will become more resilient and determined to do better in their lives.
Ormiston Trust has been running for around 40 years and aims to improve the life-chances of children and young people. The Trust funds grants to the students of the Ormiston Academies Trust which has established 34 academies across England; many in areas of high deprivation. The young girls who have been chosen to go on this year’s voyages are from Year 10 and who have low levels of confidence and self-esteem.”
