    Why Girls?

    An adolescent girl stands at the doorway of adulthood. If she stays in school, remains healthy, and gains skills, she will marry later, have fewer and healthier children, and earn an income that she’ll invest back into her family.

    We know that adolescent girls are the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. Yet today only a tiny fraction of international aid is spent on their needs.

    That’s why we’re here. For them, their families, and us all.
