Loved ones have asked what they can give Veda for her birthday. We've been fortunate to have everything she needs, with so many wonderful hand me downs on the horizon. The love of our friends and family is present enough (until she starts asking for toys, anyway!)
If you do feel compelled to celebrate Veda's birthday with a gesture, please consider joining us in donating to Educate Girls, a charity that changes the lives of marginalized girls in India. $77 enrolls one out-of-school girl. Our goal would enroll 20 girls!
About Educate Girls: Throughout India, gender disparity remains a significant barrier to education. The result: about 3 million girls across the country are out of school. Founded in 2007, Educate Girls is a non-governmental organization that holistically tackles issues at the root of gender inequality in India’s educational system. With a focus on enrollment, retention and learning, Educate Girls aims to provide quality education for all underserved and marginalized girls by mobilizing and leveraging public, private, and community resources to improve access to education and school quality. Educate Girls currently implements its programs in more than 12,000 schools. In the last 10 years, Educate Girls has enrolled over 110,000 girls and more than 600,000 children have demonstrated improved learning outcomes.
