Are you ready to make a BIG difference in the life of a girl in the developing world? This month we’re launching TWO awesome fundraising initiatives for girls’ education.
Get involved with one of these fundraisers to help educate the 66 million girls worldwide who are being denied the opportunity to go to school.
Help Erin Davis send 300 girls to school
Education is the key to unlocking girls’ full potential. Scholarships are one of the most powerful gifts you can give girls in the developing world to end the cycle of poverty.
Radio host, mother, and one of four daughters, Erin Davis understands the power of education and supports the goal to send 300 girls in the developing world to school by providing them with scholarships. Plan Canada’s scholarships cover tuition and supplies.
A scholarship is about more than changing the life of one girl. It’s about changing her destiny — and the destinies of those around her.
By providing a scholarship, you’re helping her see that marriage and early motherhood aren’t her only options. Her future can then open up wide in front of her, and she will be able to help inspire her sisters, her brothers and others in her community.
By helping one girl change the direction of her life, you’ll be touching the lives of so many others. It’s a circle of change that you can help create.
