Thank you to everyone who participated in #GivingTuesday yesterday!

💙 Together we raised funds to support TEN GIRLS to enroll at the Kitenga Girls Secondary School in 2021! We cannot thank you enough for bringing us one step closer to giving girls the education they deserve. 💙

Especially in this challenging year, the response from the GEC community is as impressive as ever - we're truly amazed by your dedication to support and inform people around you about girls education.

And we are not stopping there!! GEC is continuing to raise until the end of 2020 to support even MORE GIRLS to school next year. Please continue to support them and raise awareness for girls education. #thewholegirl #thewholeworld #girlseducation

Nice, one of our students, credits the Kitenga Girls Secondary School for gaining self-determination! Because of her ability to attend school, she knows herself and her capabilities.

Every girl should feel this way when they get an education and are able to chase their dreams 🏃🏾‍♀️ #GivingTuesday

The ability to read, write, and analyze; the confidence to stand up and demand justice and equality; the qualifications and connections to get your foot in that door and take your seat at that table—all of that starts with education.” Michelle Obama

Educating girls empowers them to be more than they imagined for themselves.

Be part of the movement and host a facebook fundraiser.

At GEC, we believe in the value of cherishing the WHOLE GIRL and her own unique story. By helping to give a girl the ability to continue her education, you are giving her the opportunity her to realize her own potential.

Educate a girl, change the world. #GivingTuesday

A girl who has undergone #FGMC or #childmarriage is less likely to have access to health services & face increased risk of violence.

Sign this letter & help hold the #GenerationEquality action coalition on #GBV accountable for action on #CEFM & #FGMC.

Michelle Obama and Melinda Gates: We can't ignore adolescent girls in Covid-19 response

"Around the world, life is often more difficult for adolescent girls. During a pandemic, it can be downright dangerous.

We believe that government, philanthropic and grassroots leaders around the world must prioritize adolescent girls in any pandemic response.

To keep girls learning.
To keep girls healthy.
To keep girls safe and empowered."

#covid19 #girlseducation #health

History has shown that a global crisis like the Covid-19 pandemic puts the education, safety and futures of adolescent girls at even greater risk, leaving the world in further peril. Michelle Obama and Melinda Gates argue that addressing these risks must be a priority in the world's pandemic respons...

In some areas of Tanzania, 32% of women between the ages of 15 and 49 have undergone female genital mutilation (FGM). This is an extreme violation of human rights and an invasion of privacy for women. FGM is one of many examples of gender discrimination that is cruel and immoral.

The World Health Organization cites that FGM brings no health benefits and only brings harm physically, mentally, emotionally, and sexually.

Anne, thank you so much for your inspiring and informative presentation today on GEC's work in Tanzania on behalf of girls, their communities, and the future. I loved that there were 13-year-old American girls there to hear about some of the challenges facing their African sisters.
On Women’s Day, I am super excited to introduce my 13 year old, Maya's new website and blog, She Dreams, to you. Maya would like She Dreams to be a voice for disadvantaged girls, particularly those in need of education. She is encouraging her readers to participate in girls' education. Please swing by her page. Please like and share her page, comment, shop or donate. https://www.facebook.com/shedreams.us/
Is there any way to order the tshirts you were selling at Malala? They sold out before I could get some!
I am so proud that I have finally been able to meet these wonderful, beautiful, hard-working young ladies. Please consider helping us out to educate not only these girls but the whole world!!
