Fundraising for girls' education and equal rights for women
A staggering 130 million girls around the world miss out on an education as a consequence of being born a girl.
Instead of being at school, they are expected to contribute to family income, take care of domestic tasks such as looking after younger siblings and/or get married to start a family. For girls who are given the opportunity to go to school, they face continual gender-based discrimination and inequality in the classroom. A significant lack of qualified female teachers denies young women positive female role models to support and mentor them as they transition into adulthood. Educating girls not only changes the lives of those girls but also their families, communities and countries.
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. At One Girl, we champion gender equality by elevating the role and status of women and girls to help them achieve their dreams and be the best they can be. This not only pertains to the classroom but extends further as One Girl advocates for good health and menstrual hygiene practices, tackling the sometimes-dangerous taboos about periods, sexual rights, safe relationships, and respect for women.
Will you help me change the world one girl at a time?
