Inside Teaching : June 2011
Inside Teaching | June 2011 FEATURE 10 generate prosperity for herself and her family. With that shift, other dominoes fall. Broader attitudes about girls change. Families become healthier, and wealthier. The girl effect unfolds. Today, the world is starting to see that the cost of excluding a girl doesn’t just affect her. It affects everyone. The ranks of girl champions around the world are growing, including the Nike Foundation, the NoVo Foundation, the United Nations Foundation, the Coalition for Adolescent Girls, the International Women’s Development Agency, the International Center for Research on Women, the Population Council, CARE, the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood, the Center for Global Development, Plan International and the Global Business Coalition, among others. Progress has been made and solutions identified, yet more must be done. What you can do Invest in a girl and she will do the rest. • Give what you can. Today, less than two cents of every international aid dollar is directed to adolescent girls. Visit globalgiving.com/girleffect to donate to one of the many organisations working to unleash the girl effect • Educate yourself. Learn about organisations and girls unleashing the girl effect; follow what’s happening on the global agenda; read everything you can. • Share. Check out our three- minute video clip, which was named one of TED’s ‘ads worth spreading’ this year – it’s at www.girleffect.org – and share it with others. The more who know, the better. • Join.
