We love this video because it clearly shows how when you educate a girl, you change the world. If you like it, too, please share with friends!

We’re passionate about working with girls.


Because when you set a girl up for success, you can break cycles of poverty in just one generation, and change the course of a community forever.

We’ve joined the global movement to build better futures for girls through:

Empowerment: Through our Rethinking Power program, we’re developing school curricula that teach Haitian youth how to stop cycles of domestic violence in their tracks.

Protection: Our Child Protection Program ensures Haitian girls and boys grow up in a safe, loving environment free of child slavery.

And, most important…

Education: Our Accelerated Education classrooms help children–mostly girls–who are most at-risk of entering a life of servitude catch up.

In fact, we’re raising funds to keep these classrooms’ doors open right now. Our deadline to raise the $6,000 we still need is coming up next Tuesday.

Thank you, and Happy International Day of the Girl!
