Education and Entrepreneurship for Girls Around The World

I’m proud to be participating in The Girl Effect Blogging Campaign.

Why Educate Girls?

“When a girl in the developing world receives seven or more years of education, she marries four years later and has 2.2
fewer children.”

When women and girls earn income, they reinvest 90 percent of it into their families, as compared to only 30 to 40
percent for a man.

How I feel about girls, education, and entrepreneurship

I have to say that there is no greater untapped resource out there in the world than girls. The world is full of natural resources, and we might currently value gold or diamonds highly… But girls are the true gems.

Here’s the thing, I’m not suggesting that we exploit girls as if they were a diamond mine. That’s already been done, and it obviously doesn’t do anyone any good.

What I am suggesting is that girls are either being their amazing, creative, smart, nurturing, and world-changing selves… or they’re not being given the chance. Which would you prefer?

Lots of smart, contributing, responsible women leading the world into a more balanced healthy way of life. Yes, please.

That’s what the Girl Effect is all about, and it gives us all hope. Educated girls, entrepreneur girls, they all have the ability to change the direction the planet is headed in. For the better, and for everyone.

Check out The Girl Effect.

Or start a Kiva loan to a woman entrepreneur so she can teach her children about entrepreneurship, help educate them, and continue the cycle of good juju.

    Nice video! Thank you for the post!

    BTW… I was trying to find how to share it on FB and I was looking for the buttons at the end of the text. Couldn’t find them, until I realized they are vertical and to the left… Not the most intuitive location… : (

    Nathalie,

    I am so glad to see you blogging about the Girl Effect. Did you know that there are young girls and women all over the world who are unable to care for themselves during their periods? They resort to things like newspaper, leaves, ashes, or old mattress stuffing or they stay isolated for several days EVERY month! How long could you keep up in school if you missed one week out of every month? Right, many drop out never finishing the education that could help them better their situation. I work with a special organization called Days for Girls International (www.daysforgirls.org). We provide feminine hygiene kits to non-profit organizations for distribution to schools, orphanages, and villages in developing countries. Please check out our website to see what you and your readers can do to help. Or drop in on our Facebook page to catch the action at http://www.Facebook.com/DaysforGirls. This is an amazing work. It takes so little of the resources we have to make a big difference in the life of a girl in need.
