Girl’s Education Groups, Part 1 10×10 Fund
According to a CNN article last year, http://www.cnn.com/2014/05/13/world/iyw-nigerian-girls/index.html education can be supported by financially supporting groups that focus on education.
Let us take a look at a few of them over the year, and see what we can do to help them achieve their goal.
I would like to start off with the 10×10 Fund for Girls’ Education. This is a group that has produced a film, featuring 9 stories of girls and education. Their call to action is that a $50 donation can educate a girl for a year. A YEAR.
I think this is a fantastic starting point for Itzybellababy. We will be considering this donation as we learn more about this group.
I have decided to join their mailing list and take the actions they suggest:
“Thanks for joining
You’ve taken the first step to seeing the world changed by educating girls. Now, use your voice and spread the word:
- Share the message on Twitter. Here’s a sample tweet: Giving a girl access to education can end a cycle of poverty. @girlrising is raising awareness, join in! http://girlrising.com
- Share the Girl Rising trailer on Facebook. And remember to include your own personal note why this movement is important to you.
- Invest in Girls’ Education. Give to the Girl Rising Fund and support on the ground programs around the world.
Thanks for joining the Girl Rising community!”
I would also like to commit to viewing this film. I will share what I see!
I will be sharing the Tweet as well as the trailer
If I like what I see, a donation may follow. So are you going to commit to any of these tasks?
