BENEFITING: CIRCLE OF SISTERHOOD FOUNDATION INC
When girls and women are given the opportunity to be educated, they are also given the opportunity to lift their families and communities from poverty. In the world today, there are still over 62 million girls out of school. Rather than receiving an education, they fall victim not only to poverty, but also to oppressive and misogynistic acts like sex trafficking, child marriage, and genital mutilation. Many other barriers to education exist, but there is a way to help break them.
In 2010, Ginny Carroll founded Circle of Sisterhood. This foundation raises funds to help break barriers to girls' education worldwide. Florida Atlantic University's Panhellenic community has adopted Circle of Sisterhood as their Panhellenic philanthropy, a cause that chapters can support together. As sorority women, we learn about the adversity many of our founders faced as they fought for women's right to education; now, it's our turn to fight for girls' rights to attend school.
FAU's Panhellenic is raising money for Circle of Sisterhood, with the ultimate goal to build a school in an underprivileged country through their Ambassador Trek Program. A donation of any amount would be greatly appreciated. Even a mere $0.24 provides a notebook and pencil- two essential tools in a girl's schooling.
