Dear Girl Champs,

We are excited to introduce you to this year’s Girl Effect Fund recipients featured on GlobalGiving!  We have a fantastic group of twelve innovative programs working to empower adolescent girls living in poverty in various ways, ranging from health and education, to vocational training, and the fight against sex trafficking.  We’ll continue to update you on their progress and work throughout 2013, but first let us introduce you to them!

Days for Girls International’s “Empower African Girl with Hygiene and Education

Girl Determined’s “Help Put Girls at the Forefront of Change in Burma

Congratulations to these organizations and please join us in welcoming them to the Girl Effect Fund! The clock is ticking for 250 million adolescent girls living in poverty, and these incredible organizations are helping girls realize their potential to unleash a ripple effect of change – not only for her, but for her family, her community, and the world.
