Because I am a Girl…
I watch my brothers go to school while I stay at home.
I eat if there’s food left over when everyone is done.
I am the poorest of the poor.
I will share what I know.
I am the heart of my community.
I will pull my family out of poverty if you give me the chance.
I will take what you invest in me and uplift everyone around me.
Because I am a Girl, I can change the world!
Work through the book one page at a time. It’ll get you thinking about how girls around the world live, go to school, and spend their time, as well as what they have in mind for their future.
Think about your own hopes and dreams for your future. Then think about what YOU would do to change another girls’ life. How would you help her get closer to her goals and dreams?
The Because I am a Girl passport is a great way for you to figure out just how YOU are going to make a difference in girls’ lives and get involved with the Because I am a Girl initiative.
