One Girl Ambassadors 2021

I'm fundraising for girls' education

My passion for gender equality, and strong belief that women should not be in any way oppressed because of their gender, motivates me every day to keep advocating for One Girl and to continue to work with the other ambassadors to ensure we can raise funds, awareness and change the lives of young women. 

 

Learning about the lack of education and opportunities presented and available for young women in countries such as Sierra Leone and Uganda has sparked an intense motivation within me. 130 million girls are denied education around the world, and a girl in Sierra Leone is more likely to be married before the age of 18 than she is to finish high school. Ultimately, education changes everything and I am now aware of this, and the incredible benefits and butterfly effects that occur when girls finish high school.


Here is some food for thought:

 

 In 2017, Paul Hawken released Project Drawdown, a research project that ranks, from 1 to 80, the most effective ways to combat global warming. The sixth most effective way is to educate girls. The seventh, is to teach family planning. If you combine these two and rephrase it as 'the empowerment of women', then statistically, it is the Number One most effective way to reverse climate change! 

So, not only will supporting girls through their education assist with breaking down the barriers that are stopping the world from reaching ultimate gender equality, but it will also see numerous positive impacts in regards to combating climate change.

Obviously, this is incredible, but what is even better, is that we can do something to support this cause, and it is essential that we do so, particularly during these trying times.  The challenges that we all face due to COVID-19 further amplifies the need for support for the One Girl cause, so that this does not become yet another barrier between girls and education. 


Supporting and advocating for this cause will have a HUGE impact, and help change the world – one girl at a time.

A great initiative on your part Maddie. We all may be struggling a bit with rolling lockdowns, but it’s nothing compared to girls and women in other countries who continue to be repressed. Education is most definitely the answer. We’ll done you, and lots of love. xx
