Summary

The purpose of this Girls Education International campaign is to raise $21,000 to improve the lives of girls in Liberia, Tanzania, and Pakistan. Since 2006, Girls Education International (GEI) has provided educational opportunities for young women and girls. This campaign will provide education to over 100 additional girls.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Our challenge is educating young women and girls. Over two-thirds of illiterate adults in the world are women. One-third of girls in the developing world will marry before 18 years of age. Uneducated girls have little chance of escaping the cycle of poverty--leading to child marriage, teenage pregnancy, sexual assault, greater risk of HIV/AIDS, and genital mutilation.

How will this project solve this problem?

We believe Education is the answer. Education empowers young women with autonomy and the opportunity to make their own life decisions. It enables young women and girls to pursue better jobs. Education also allows a young woman the ability to be independent from her husband and family and move out of a life of poverty, early marriage and abuse.

Potential Long Term Impact

As these young women are educated, they are more likely to actively participate in their community, raise healthier, smaller families, and educate their own children. Educated girls and women are agents of change -- they become major economic resources and are the keys to moving their societies towards civil stability.
