10 reasons to invest in girls
May 27, 2016

Find out why we think you should invest in The Girls Project.  See more

THE STORY:

Landesa seeks to leverage funds raised through the Skoll Social Entrepreneurship Challenge to benefit The Girls Project.

The Girls Project, a partnership between the government of West Bengal and Landesa, aims to keep girls in school and reduce their vulnerability to child marriage.

More than 40,000 girls have already participated in the project, learning about their rights to own and inherit land, and receiving training in intensive gardening skills during regular meetings led by the girls themselves with support from government rural health workers.

Girls who participate in the program are more likely to stay in school, marry later, and have an asset in their name.

Please help Landesa achieve our goal of reaching one million more girls through this project.
