There are more than 600 million girls in the developing world. We’re not joking around when we say that these girls are the world's greatest untapped solution to global poverty. In many countries, however, girl power is no laughing matter; people don’t see girls as assets, they see them as a liability.
Enter the Girl Effect. The Girl Effect is a movement that promotes the unique potential of adolescent girls to end poverty for themselves and the world.

If you believe that every girl should have the opportunity to participate, then we invite you to make your voice heard as part of the Girl Effect Challenge.
Today, more than 50 organizations are competing in the GlobalGiving Girl Effect Challenge to receive Girl Effect funding, but only twelve will win. To make sure the best programs for girls are chosen, we need your help!
Vote with your wallet NOW through November 30 for the project you think is doing the best work with girls!
Thanks in advance for helping us find the best programs – and thank you for the difference your donation will make for girls around the world.
