girl power + poverty + change + social justice

Further to the amazing BECAUSE I’M A GIRL website about issues affecting
young girls in the developing world, there’s going a new book of stories from
around the world. BECUZ I’M A GIRL
Sorry to be sort of tweetie today rather than bloggy,
but wanted to spread the word.

Girl power + girls matter +

imagesGirls around the world need out help. I like to think I’m aware of things but this number is truly scarios. Of the one billion people around the world living in extreme poverty, 70% are women and girls. And while we might moan, groan, complain and whine about going to school, 20 million girls never do because they can’t or aren’t allowed. Girls also face more violence than boys do.

So what can we do? You can join the sisterhood of BECAUSE I AM A GIRL from Plan Canada an international aid group. Super kewl website.
