Did you know that more than 63 million girls worldwide are out of school?  We think this is totally unacceptable, so we're doing something about it. We hope you'll join us.

Girls Read for Girls is a read-a-thon fundraiser that aims to raise awareness about gender equity issues, generate funds in support of efforts to empower girls through education, and inspire young people to make changes in their community (you learn more about the event at www.girlsreadforgirls.org).

Last year, we raised $18,000 for The Malala Fund. This year, we hope to raise even more.

We go to great schools. We feel confident, safe and respected. Every day we learn from parents, teachers and other adults who push us to think broadly about the world and ask big, hard questions.  We are encouraged to read what we want, plan our futures and pursue our interests. We know that we will have real opportunities to keep learning and to participate fully in our society. We believe this is how the world should be for all girls everywhere.

When young women are denied an education because of social, economic, cultural or political factors, the world loses one of its most powerful resources for progress and change.

We are inspired by Malala Yousafzai and want to show our support for her and all the people who show tremendous courage in the fight for girls’ education. That’s why we organized the Girls Read for Girls read-a-thon, and are reading to raise money for the Malala Fund. We hope you’ll join us.

If you’re able to help with any size donation, your gift will: 

  • Amplify girls’ voices by giving them a platform to connect with Malala Fund and each other. 
  • Support local leaders and organizations in Nigeria, Pakistan, Kenya, and places housing Syrian refugees. We invest in these on-the-ground organizations because we believe real, lasting change will ultimately come from empowered local leadership. 
  • Advocate for the necessary resources and policy changes to enable all girls to receive safe, quality education. 

Thank you in advance for your support!
