EVENT DATE: Nov 05, 2013
For my 21st birthday, I want you to make the difference in a girl's life by giving her the gift of education. Education is a human right and is essential to the development of children, our future leaders. But many children do not have access to this right and young girls especially, are not given the opportunity to find empowerment through education.
This is what your donation can do for a young girl in Africa:
$10 buys a school supplies pack. Small items like this can make all the difference between a girl staying in school and dropping out.
$25 supports a girl’s primary school education for a year, putting her on the path to success.
$40 buys a girl a new school uniform, bolstering her pride and sense of confidence.
$300 buys a full scholarship package to secondary school for a year, providing a girl with everything she needs to stay in school and succeed: school fees, room and board, books, uniform, shoes, and school supplies.
Powerful, right? To think that what we pay for for a phone or a purse can give a girl everything she needs to be put on a path to success. Make a positive impact today and donate to my birthday fundraiser for Camfed USA Foundation, which educates girls in some of the poorest areas of rural Africa and invests in economic and leadership opportunities for them.
