Educate a girl and she can change the world!
Thanks for finding your way to my One Girl page!
My name is Casey and I'm so proud to be a One Girl Ambassador this year!
One Girl are all about reducing the barriers that girls face in accessing an education. 132 million girls around the world are out of school!
One Girl are imagining a world where all girls, no matter where they are born or how much money they have, can have the opportunity to be the best they can be through the power of education. When you educate a girl, everything changes. Her health, status, income potential and future, as well the ripple effects on her whole community.
A girl in Sierra Leone is more likely to be married before the age of 18 than she is to complete high school, only 16% of girls have the opportunity to finish their high school education.
One Girl is such an incredible organisation that I've supported for a number of years. They have established programs in Sierra Leone and Uganda that work with the existing fantastic education systems to remove barriers that prevent girls from being able to attend school. They provide mentoring and educational support, monthly access to menstrual hygiene products so girls can still attend school when they have their period, they provide uniforms, textbooks and school supplies, as well as money for lunch and so much more!!
I'm so very grateful for the opportunity I have had to receive an education without barriers, to have had the choice to pursue a career. All girls deserve that same opportunity.
Will you help me change the world one girl at a time?
