I'm fundraising for girls' education
Did you know that 130 million girls around the world are out of school?
The barriers range from their families simply not having the income to pay for their education, stereotypes around gender, generational illiteracy, teenage marriage, early pregnancy, and the absence of education concerning menstrual health management.
Young girls in countries like Sierra Leone and Uganda face a cruel reality when they are unable to attend school. These young girls are often married at 14 and having children by 15. Being out of school, out of a safer environment, she is much more likely to face physical and sexual violence. These are heartbreaking facts to read, but don't lose hope because this is a team of wonderful people with the mission of helping these girls...and you can help too!
One Girl is working to break down the barriers girls face in accessing an education in Sierra Leone and Uganda. They have programs in and outside of the classroom educating women on entrepreneurship, self-confidence, critical thinking, communication and discipline. One Girl also has programs concerning menstrual health management.
Educating girls not only changes the lives of those girls, but also their families, communities and countries. Educated girls on average have fewer children, earn twice as much as an uneducated girl and are therefore able to provide for the children they have. This means a decrease in poverty! Not only that, but getting more girls in school will have a positive impact on climate change! Thats something I can definitely support!
This year I'm proud to be a One Girl Ambassador! I'm supporting One Girl by raising awareness and raising funds for girls' education.
Will you help me change the world one girl at a time?
Happy dance moment!!!
