Thank you for supporting Somali refugees in Ethiopia

Your support of a Somali refugee girl now living in a refugee camp in Ethiopia makes a direct impact in her ability to get an education.

Girl Up works alongside the UN to help fund programs that provide opportunities for refugee girls who have fled from Somalia as a result of conflict and violence. These programs reach more than 16,000 girls and focus on:
 

Education

  • Keeping girls in school to learn how to read and write, and in turn, decreasing their chances of being married as a child bride.

Health

  • Building toilets and more water points that are cleaner and more accessible.

Safety

  • Girls clubs in each of the programs provide girls a safe space to study, learn, and play with other girls.
  • Distributing solar lamps at night and helping delay child marriage. 

Leadership

  • Sending mentors door-to-door to look for girls who need help and providing a safe place for caring adult mentors to meet with girls on a weekly basis

On behalf of Girl Up, thank you for your support for girls around the world.
