“When women are healthy and educated, the benefits extend to their children, communities and nations…Poverty and malnutrition decline, living standards improve and economic growth increases” Michelle Bachelet, UN
“There are no silver bullets when it comes to poverty. But education comes close, it’s the leverage to change the world” Nick Kristof, Half the Sky
Girls….girls become women. They become mothers and grandmothers…they are leaders, teachers, mentors, gatherers… bringers of life, love and nurture.
‘a Girl & her world’ believes that no matter where she lives or which family she was born into, a girl was created for this process, built for it in all its beauty, strength, wonder and value.
Many, many, many girls around the world live with their wings clipped though they were meant to fly.
They don’t go to school, they are married young, they are scarred as child-mothers giving birth. They are hungry and witness violence. They are limited by circumstances…they don’t dare to dream.
Our world is robbed of the gift they were meant to be…their uniqueness is never unwrapped or seen.
We are about a Girl & her world. Her education, her family’s income, her health and wellbeing. We are about seeing her laugh and dream…succeed…have choices. Be who she wants to be…who she was meant to be.
There are girls in the Pacific islands who we are walking alongside. We help to mend their wings…they do the flying.
We support their education – small businesses for their families – their Health and Wellbeing…partner with us as we partner with them.
