Help ensure Salu and her classmates stay in school!

For many girls around the world, the greatest barrier to completing school is that poverty forces girls to leave school to earn money for their family. Many girls, like Salu, are helping their parents to earn a basic income, while also caring for their younger siblings. During Girls' Voices, girls around the world learn to share their hopes and dreams for completing school and to share their greatest barrier to completing school. Our goal is that girls gain confidence, financial support, and the ability to navigate the challenges that may prevent them from completing school.

During the Girls' Voices workshop, Salu created a video about the realities of attending school while also helping her father in their tea shop. Her piece, No Time to Study, showcases the time deficit many girls around the world face while trying to attend school. Despite her difficulties, Salu is determined to complete school. She says, "No one can make you feel inferior if you are educated".

You can help.
