Entering Secondary School
"No Time to Study"
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".
We are proud of Salu for creating a video that shows the realities of attending school in Nepal, and we want to make sure her family has the tuition funds they need so that she can continue to attend secondary.

You can help. For just $15.00, you can send Salu to school for one month. Help us reach our goal to send all of the Voices of Women students to school for a year!
About Girls Voices:
Girls' Voices is a signature program of GreaterGood.org intended to raise funds for girls' secondary education through media made by girls. Our goal is for girls around the world to connect to their voice, their dreams for their education, and use the power of digital media to create images, stories, and visual metaphors that can communicate their strength and potential to the world. The intention of this project is to empower girls to utilize videography and to raise funds, 100% of which will directly contribute to scholarship funds for girls facing financial barriers to completing secondary education.
VOW Media wants to contribute to a world where women and young girls enjoy their basic rights and live with dignity, equality, and justice. They are a non-profit organization that is committed to providing women and young girls from marginalized communities with innovative media tools to enable them to voice their own lives, to empower them and strengthen their voices. The advancement of women in society can be fostered by the creation of a positive self-image and a stronger sense of identity through the use of art, media, and education. They believe that personalizing women's individual experiences can stop violence inflicted on them, change social norms and end discrimination.
