I'm standing up for girls' education
Here's the deal: Did you know more than 130 million girls around the world are denied access to an education? Or that a girl in Sierra Leone is more likely to be married before the age of 18 than she is to finish high school?
I'm proud to be a One Girl ambassador because I want every girl - no matter where she was born - to be able to choose her path in life. And I'm asking you to join the movement that is making tangible change.
One Girl works with local teams in Sierra Leone and Uganda to provide school scholarships, business training and reproductive health programs.
Money raised goes towards providing school items such as uniforms, text books, masks, hand sanitiser and hygiene products.
It also funds One Girl programs such as 'Girls Emerge' (a vocational and leadership program, which empowers girls to find safe, valuable work and break cycles of intergenerational poverty) and 'Girl Tok' (which keeps girls engaged in education during lockdowns, providing access to smartphones and regular wellness checks).
COVID-19 compounded many of the barriers girls face in getting their education, making One Girl's work more important than ever.
Educating girls not only changes the lives of those girls, but also their families, communities and countries. Investing in women and girls' futures - and ensuring they have access to reproductive health care and birth control - is also one of the most powerful solutions in tackling climate change.
Will you help me change the world, one girl at a time?
