Please make your donation recurring for greater impact. For $45/month you can help three girls, and for $180, you can help 12 girls.

Educating girls can change the world, but first we need to make sure they don't miss school for lack of the necessities!

Donations to The Girl Fund cover: sanitary supplies, inner wear, medical care, milk, fruit, and Horlicks (a drink fortified with important vitamins and minerals like iron, b vitamins, vitamin a, d and e). The girls also attend Empowerment Training to increase confidence, self-esteem, and life skills. The cost is about $15/month for each girl.

She has a long history of volunteer work including Board Member and Board Chair service, grant writing and fundraising experience, program development, and creative leadership, all serving our most vulnerable and disenfranchised populations.
