International Day of the Girl
This October 11, join us in celebrating the International Day of the Girl Child — a day dedicated to amplifying the voices of girls worldwide and advocating for their rights. Here at One Girl Can, we are committed to transforming this spirit into action.
Right now, there’s an immediate need to support the 70% of girls who have applied for scholarships through One Girl Can but still lack funding for this school year.
Through our 150 Strong campaign, we aim to send 150 girls back to school. We firmly believe that one girl with education can impact a community, a country, and indeed the world. An empowered girl creates ripples of change, breaking cycles of poverty and setting the stage for generations to come.
Act now! Your contribution could rewrite the course of a young girl's life. Donate today to our 150 Strong campaign. Stand with us in championing the spirit of the International Day of the Girl. Together, let's create a world where every girl has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.
