Join Our 2023 Youth CHALlenge! 'Education Changes lives'
Despite progress, at least 773 million young people and adults lack basic literacy skills today. Education provides a way out of poverty, providing opportunities only dreamed of!
Teens across the country are invited to join our 2023 Youth Challenge, enabling vulnerable girls to receive quality education, break cyclical poverty, and rediscover the joy of dreaming big dreams.
A girl’s education has a huge impact on all of society. Our schools enable vulnerable girls to receive a quality English medium education. Over 6,000 girls in our schools are currently unsponsored.
To celebrate International Literacy Day, we invite students, classes and youth groups to organise their own events to raise funds for unsponsored girls.
$33 supports one girl for one month; every $396 educates a girl for an entire year, including nutrition, health care, sports and the arts.
"One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world."

We Need your Support
These girls have the odds stacked against them from birth, but an education can transform their future. Access to education does more than give a girl the chance to learn and grow–it unlocks the door to freedom and provides an opportunity to pursue their dreams.
