Alleviating poverty is at the heart of what we do. We create jobs in developing countries and love telling people, “You’re Hired!”
We create schools, programs and global communities around the common goal of quality education for all children.
We are outraged that girls around the world face injustices that threaten their education, safety and ultimately their lives. Together with adolescent girls and supporters like you, we're working to end child marriage, human trafficking and other injustices preventing youth, especially girls, from growing into their potential. COVID-19 update: The fight for gender equality cannot take a backseat right now. Girls who were already vulnerable are in even more danger. When schools close their doors, girls are at the highest risk of never going back again. When health care resources are diverted, girls lose crucial services. And in times of crisis, like this pandemic, harmful practices like child marriage, trafficking and gender-based violence dramatically escalate. We aren’t giving up, and we know you aren’t either. We’ll be here, every day, making sure girls are safe and healthy and that their futures aren’t compromised. But we really can’t do this without you.
Our mission is to give all children the chance to read and succeed.
Strong Women, Strong Girls is a multi-generational mentoring program for girls and women.
