IF NOT YOU, THEN WHO?
The Big Issue
70% of the world’s poor are girls, and extreme poverty is the #1 reason girls don’t attend school.
Primary school enrollment in African countries is among the lowest in the world. 34% of school age girls in Africa do not attend school. The reason? They can’t afford to pay for school. And without an education, a girl is left with no way to care for her needs and becomes extremely vulnerable to violence.
But we have good news! We see girls, just like you, in Africa that are using their gifts to bring change to the places where they live. Research has demonstrated that when a girl attends school, there is a positive impact in their communities SO LARGE that it can’t be compared with other forms of help. They even gave this girl power a name. It’s called The Girl Effect.
Because we believe you can positively impact the lives of girls around the world, we hope you will accept the challenge and take action. Your girl power can send girls to school and provide them with a safe place to dream, create, and bring strength to their communities.
You can send a girl to school and provide a safe place for her to live and receive basic medical care and meals. She needs you.
