she is more likely to create a smaller and healthier family, earn a higher wage, educate her own children, avoid childhood marriage and sex trafficking, and poverty goes down, economies grow stronger and the world gets better.

LIFE SKILLS EDUCATION
Classes and extracurricular activities are taught to develop girls’ confidence, communication and self-advocacy skills to forge their own independent path instead of one forced upon them.
LOCAL MENTORS
Local mentors are educated role models, advisors and advocates for girls in the program. They speak with parents, visit the girls in their homes, and support girls emotionally to help them stay in school.
MATERIAL SUPPORT
Material support can be the cost of a uniform, safe transportation, tuition fees, or exam preparation services.
COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
Community meetings with local leaders and parents to create a culture of gender equality and value in educating girls.
