We strive to create high-quality, inspiring products that provide you with an opportunity to invest in the empowerment of girls.
We believe that giving girls access to education is one of the main ways to target the exploitation of girls. When you invest in the education of girls, it not only provides them with the knowledge and life skills to be successful, but it is vital in breaking the cycle of poverty. Currently, there are 66 million girls out of school. This puts each of those girls at a higher risk for teenage pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, human trafficking, and simply not having their basic needs met. Educating a girl is one of the highest returns on investment.
Sex trafficking is the fastest growing criminal enterprise worldwide with 98% of the victims being female. Every day girls are being bought and sold for sex by people from all income levels, ethnicities, ages, and occupations. This issue is rooted in people’s fascination with child pornography and prostitution, as well as the lack of self confidence in girls with a history of abuse and neglect. In order to fight this issue, we must decrease both the supply and demand by coming together as a community.
Water and Sanitation
Access to clean water is commonly taken for granted but has the power to change everything. Women and children spend 125 million hours a day collecting water. For many girls, clean water means trading their education for days spent gathering life’s most basic necessity. When a community gains access to safe water, it leads to better health, increased food supply, growing economies, and more time in school for girls. Healthier, happier girls are a powerful force for change.
