A portion of every revenue stream through this website as well as my services, will go to “TOSTAN” and “girls not brides”.
Both charities are human-rights based initiatives to protect the most vulnerable young women and girls.
“Greatness is not defined by what you have, but by what you give.”
I strongly feel that the more we have, give. The more we receive, share. and the more we rise, lift.
Tostan uses a human rights-based approach to community empowerment and
sustainable development programs across Africa. Their education programs are
inclusive and non-judgmental, and they work with community members to
help enact change that benefits women and girls.
According to their website, their programs have resulted in 19K+ women
selected into community leadership positions, 7,000+ communities publicly
declaring they will not allow their daughters to marry before age 18, and 3
million plus people living in communities that have sworn an end to female genital
Girls Not Brides
Girls Not Brides is a partnership of over 400 organizations from 60 countries across the world, all dedicated to ending the practice of child marriage. Per their website, 15 million girls are married before they turn 18 every year. 650 million women alive today were married as children.
Child marriage is a truly global problem that cuts across countries, cultures, religions and ethnicities. Child brides can be found in every region in the world, from the Middle East to Latin America, South Asia to Europe.
That is 1 and 5 girls globally.
