Now that the events following the demise of the British Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II has ended, both sides of the Royal family are back to business. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry, and Meghan, have seemingly returned to California and have already started showing active enthusiasm towards their NGO, Archewell Foundation.
The foundation announced a joint partnership with the Ving Project– an organization that supports young and budding philanthropists, yesterday. The aim is to provide financial aid to young women who aspire to do something unique, and whose soul is that of a giver, but do not have enough currency to support themselves. Here are all the details you need to know about this new initiative of the royal couple.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to donate $1 million to women in need in partnership with the Ving Foundation
Notably, the Archewell Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has teamed up with the Ving project to give $1 million in grants to women who serve as an inspiration to the teens. The partnership has asked children between the age group of 14 to 18 to nominate a woman who has inspired them and worked hard to meet their goals despite facing financial hardship.
If chosen, the nominators will provide the agreed amount of money to the nominee of their choice. The American actor expressed her happiness for this collaboration in a press release stating, “two things that bring me great joy are supporting women, and the spirit of giving.”
Seemingly, the partnership is inspired by her podcast, Archetypes, where she talks about various issues relating to women and also shares inspirational stories. She also stated in her message that the aim is not only to provide money to those in need but also to help the youth experience and embrace the happiness that comes from giving.
Both Harry and Meghan are extremely proud of this initiative. What are your thoughts about this drive though? Do you think it will be fruitful? Let us know in the comment section below.
