With World Thinking Day right around the corner, it’s important to think about the issues that face girls globally. It’s hard to believe, but tens of millions of girls around the world are not allowed to go to school. In some parts of the world, simply being born a girl means being kept from getting an education. Yet, the more education a girl gets, the more likely she is to have a healthy family, a solid income to invest back into her community, and a vision for her future.
Girl Scouts of the USA and CARE have partnered to launch The Power of Girls, an initiative to mobilize girls in the U.S. around critical issues affecting girls around the world. The Power of Girls Pledge is a commitment girls make to learn more about issues girls face around the world, share what they’ve learned, and to take action to make the world a better place for girls both locally and globally. Learn more about the initiative and get involved — take the Power of Girls pledge.
