Sierra Leone Uganda

Here's The
Problem

 

We work in Sierra Leone and Uganda. Some of the worst places on earth to be born a girl.

Less than 25%

of girls in Uganda get the chance to finish primary school.

Up to 50%

of girls in Uganda and Sierra Leone are forced into marriage before they're 18.

5 in 6

girls in Sierra Leone never get to high school. In Uganda it's 9 in 10.

A girl born in Sierra Leone is more likely to be sexually assaulted than go to high school.

But education changes everything.

Do It In A Dress

This October, do your challenge in a dress and educate girls.

Why Do It?

Girls are denied

Over 60 million girls globally are denied an education, simply because they are girls.

A rough start

A girl born in Sierra Leone is more likely to be sexually assaulted than to go to high school.

Limited options

Without education, a girl can struggle to earn a living and take care of her family.

But education changes everything

A girl's income increases by at least 10% for every year she stays in school. She'll get married later and have a smaller, healthier family.
