WE CREATE A RIPPLE EFFECT

When girls are empowered, nurtured and educated, we’ve seen them open up to new ideas, new ways of doing things and new opportunities. When a girl finds a new path—one that isn’t defined by abuse, poverty or any number of pitfalls—she’s more likely to create a better future for herself, her family and her community. The impact is far‑reaching.

WHY GIRLS?

Unfortunately, if you’re born a girl in most African countries, you don’t have much control over your future. And that future can be pretty grim: poverty, abuse, gender discrimination, lack of resources, nowhere to turn for help and very few options to improve your situation. Because HIV rates are among the highest in the world, many African children lose one or both parents to AIDS. And despite a tradition of extended family support, girls are more likely to suffer and are last to be schooled if funds run low or don’t exist.
When empowered and educated, girls can think in terms of new possibilities and help transform their communities.
Research shows that 80-90% of the work done by international youth programs benefit boys. When programs do include girls, the most privileged benefit, while poor and vulnerable girls are left behind. GSGC focuses on children who might otherwise remain emotionally isolated and illiterate in an area where education is both critical and elusive.
