There are 250 million adolescent girls living in poverty today, and we believe they are the most powerful force for change on the planet.
When a girl in the developing world is enabled to realize her full potential, she isn't the only one whoescapes poverty. She brings her family, community and country with her.�By giving one girl a chance,you can make the�girl effect�happen.
Send a girl to school. help fight her legal case. Give her a microloan. Start the girl effect.

Donations to the girl effect are collected through GlobalGiving and aredistributed to a select number of innovative programs�working to empower adolescent girls livingin poverty.�
