It’s a Fact that every girl is born with invisible barriers. Sponsoring them will help them turn obstacles into opportunities. Letting them grow will allow our communities to grow.
Right now, more then 130 million Girls are not in school. One in Nine Girls in the developing world are married before the age of 15. One in Six Women give birth before the age of 18.
When we educate girls, we help them make informed choices, lead a happy and healthy life, build sustainable livelihood, and contribute to the development of a better nation.
Where are the girls?” It’s a question that is asked when stepping into the classrooms around the world. Classrooms are ready and waiting but still so much of blank spaces still exist to remain.
You need not be well-acquainted with a plethora of facts and figures to understand how dire the situation of the girl child is across the globe and especially in a developing country like India. Deprived of the basic human rights, they have been sacrificed at the altar of gender for generations. One of the most painfully recurrent ways in which this deprivation manifests itself for the girls is through an alarming lack of access to education.
