THE STORY:

"What we are learning around the world is that if women are healthy and educated, their families will flourish. If women are free from violence, their families will flourish. If women have a chance to work and earn as full and equal partners in society, their families will flourish. And when families flourish, communities and nations do as well.” --Secretary of State and former First Lady Hillary Clinton Remarks for the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women - Beijing, China, Sept. 1995  

Education is one of the most powerful ways to address social change. Due to gender discrimination and poverty, girls in Nepal are often deprived of a full education - leaving some 57% of the women in the country illiterate.  Please join me in helping to educate Manisha so that she can be part of the change we want to see in the world.  

I have chosen to fundraise on behalf of Manisha Aryal because her father died a few years ago and her mother is struggling to raise the family of 5 on her own.  Manisha loves to read books, and shows great potential for having a bright future if she is able to stay in school and continue her studies.  

There are 4 easy ways to show your support of education for girls:

OPTION 4: Start your own team and fundraise for one of these girls who still need sponsorship to continue their education.
