International Women’s Day is March 8 and this year’s theme is “Press for Progress.”
For the next 15 days, 4GIRLS is a member of Global Giving’s 2018 Girl Fund Campaign. We hope you will join us in pressing for progress on gender equality – you can volunteer for one of our workshops or you can make a gift to 4GIRLS by clicking this link.
The Girl Fund Campaign is specifically for community-led organizations committed to providing opportunities for girls – and, we’ve been doing exactly that for 8 years.
4GIRLS has been pressing for progress since 2010, when we began empowering and inspiring middle school girls to use their voices to speak up for themselves and for others, raise their hands when they see opportunities and point out unfair treatment.
And, while I know there are many girls we still have to reach with our mission, I’m hopeful because I know we’ve changed the lives of over 500 young women so far.
One young woman’s life in particular comes to mind:
So, over the next 15 days, think how you can #PressforProgress and improve life for the young women in your own life and in your community. Please consider making a gift to 4GIRLS today or on March 8. Or, contact us to find out how you can volunteer and empower middle school girls to view themselves as inherently powerful, valuable and beautiful.
