International Day Of The Girl Child

October 11, 2018

I have a crush on a lot of non-profit organizations, but I wanted to highlight three today specifically in honor of #InternationalDayOfTheGirlChild.

Days for Girls International

Many girls in other countries have to MISS SCHOOL while on their periods. Days for Girls provides health education and menstrual care to these young women, and in doing so, helps them to continue to "develop [their] skills, [eventually] enter the workforce on equal terms, and reach [their] full potential." — UN Secretary-General António Guterres 📚

Education and health should be available to ALL children, and something as simple as menstrual care - which I'm sure we all take for granted - should not be preventing that. 👩‍🎓

Every Girl. Everywhere. Period. 💫

WomanStats Project

They show us that the FATE of nations is tied to the status of women, and they research and compile data, making it available FOR FREE for all. For example, you can view the practice and law of child marriage worldwide. 🌎

With over 350 variables for 176 countries, they are a resource that is much needed and should be utilized as much as possible. Find out more at womanstats.org.

Malala Fund

As someone who personally experienced discrimination concerning access to education, Malala Yousafzai created this organization to break down the barriers preventing more than 130 million girls around the world from going to school. 🍏

By investing in local education activists, advocating to hold leaders accountable, and amplifying girls' voices, Malala Fund fights for every girl’s right to 12 years of free, safe, quality education. Donate here. 🤝 "One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world." — Malala Yousafzai


Yours truly,
