Stella's Birthday Fundraiser

By Stella Gottcent

I'm donating my birthday gifts to support this awesome cause

This year I'm donating my birthday gifts to support girls' education through One Girl. One Girl is educating girls in Sierra Leone and Uganda to help them reach their full potential. So instead of gifts, I'd like to ask you to donate to them instead. 

Educating girls is one of the best ways to combat climate change, reduce the cycle of poverty, and create a fair and sustainable planet. A girl in Sierra Leone is more likely to be married before she is 18 years old than she is to finish high school, with only 16% of girls actually completing high school. No girl should be denied an education simply because she is female. But this is reality. With your help, we can change it. Thank you so much.

My Updates

I stand for her. I stand for change.

The three deadliest words in many parts of the world are 'IT'S A GIRL', but I believe we can change that. I stand for the generation where the full rights of girls and women everywhere are fulfilled because WOMEN'S RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS, AND HUMAN RIGHTS ARE WOMEN'S RIGHTS. Because of gendercide, 200 MILLION GIRLS ARE MISSING. That's 200 million fewer changemakers. Leaders. Mothers. Doctors. Teachers. Wives. They've been abandoned. Neglected. Abused. Murdered. Unwanted. This has created an increase in violence, sex-trafficking and child abduction. A girl has the right to live not just because she is a girl, not just because she can contribute to society and not just because she could change the world, but because it is her most BASIC HUMAN RIGHT. I stand for gender equality. I stand for justice. I stand against indifference. I stand for her. I stand for change. Please, stand with me against gendercide. ~ Stella, 14/10/20 ~
