Educating Girls Will Break the Poverty Cycle!
An Educated Mother Will Ensure Her Own Girls Are Educated.
An educated girl can contribute to the GDP of her country.
If India were to educate just 1% more girls, it’s GDP would improve by $5.5 billion (source “Girls Rising” documentary)
Your donation will support a girl in high school by supplying her with menstrual pads so she no longer misses 1 week of school every month.
By keeping girls in school, we are breaking the poverty cycle, one girl, one family, one village at a time.
Minimum Donation: $20.00 CAD
Girls Matter Vision
Girls Matter’s vision is to support education of girls in developing countries, to increase the respect, visibility and equality for girls in their communities.
Girls Matter’s mission is to increase access to financial support for girls’ high school and / or post secondary education in developing countries.
3 key program areas:
- Educate girls to complete high school. In select cases, consider educating girls to complete University.
- Support girls to attend classes all year long, by providing menstrual pads (currently they regularly miss 1 week of classes / month).
- Through education, reduce the # of teenage marriages / teenage Moms.
