Girl2B partners with local foundations to provide a safe and stimulating place for girls to learn, to live, to grow. We provide refuge for girls living in poverty to start a new life free of injustices. Educational resources, medical attention and psychological support guarantee each girl has everything she needs to be empowered and ultimately succeed.
"The GIRLS TO BE"
did you know it only cost $4 a day to help a girl in need in our program. That is less than a cup of coffee! $28 for one week!
We look at it this way, if we can provide EDUCATION and a safe place to live, these girls will stay off the streets and they WILL NOT become one of the horrific statistics that exist in the developing countries. Instead through everyone's efforts, these girls will stay healthy, save money, speak up for themselves, and eventually build businesses, or develop a career. An educated woman will pass this on to the next generation.
It's so simple..... Educate a girl and you are making an impact on the world. Don't you think it is unfair that your place of birth predetermines your life potential?
We are working with a local NGO in Kolkata, to open a new home for older girls. We will focus on continuing their education, career counseling, and vocational skills. We currently have one girl in university, six in high school, one in a beautician school, and a long waiting list! These girls are teenagers just like your own nieces, daughters, and friends. They are creative, driven, and determined to succeed in life and Girl2B will guide them along the way.
We are hoping you will lend your support no matter how big or small. If you cannot contribute but you want to join our mission, click on JOIN THE TEAM to become a fundraiser yourself and spread the word.
