About Girls Gotta Run Foundation: Girls Gotta Run Foundation invests in girls who use running and education to empower themselves and their communities. GGRF is the only non-profit organization in Ethiopia using the national sport of running as an innovative approach to creating safe spaces, ending child marriage and expanding access to secondary school for vulnerable girls.

• Completion of the GGRF/Center for Creative Leadership Life Skills Curriculum developed to create safe spaces for girls and provide experiential learning modules on family planning, financial literacy, HIV/AIDS awareness, nutrition, healthy relationships, leadership, and creative expression.

• Running clothes, shoes and healthy snacks for the year

• Entrance and transportation to Ethiopian races throughout the year • Oversight of a coach and running mentor
