CARE is deeply concerned about the fate of the more than 200 school girls kidnapped in Nigeria. Reportedly, some of the girls have already been sold for as little as $12.
It's critical that girls are safe in school. Educating our girls is crucial for the eradication of global poverty. An educated girl will have healthier children, earn a greater income and is more likely to send her own children to school. When societies don't value girls and their futures, entire communities suffer and generations are mired in poverty.
Please donate now to aid CARE's work preventing violence against women, sending girls to school and fighting other root causes of poverty all over the world.
