Women do not have equal access to education around the globe and we, a group of seven inspired female high school seniors, want to see a change.
“You educate a boy, and you're educating an individual. You educate a girl, and you're educating a village."-Nicholas D. Kristof, Half the Sky
We are a group that saw a problem with women’s education in the world and wanted to take action. After reading in our AP Lang class, we felt truly inspired and wanted to make a difference. This book touches upon the horrors of sex trafficking, maternal morality, sexual violence, and the little to no opportunities that are available for uneducated girls. We started the fundraiser “Girls Helping Girls” in hopes of raising awareness of women’s oppression, that can happen anywhere, right next to you or across the world. Our goal is to raise $3,000 to donate to the CARE foundation. Help make a change in someone's life, even a dollar makes a difference.
