The Girl Effect
If you want to end poverty and help the developing world, the best thing you can do is invest time, energy and funding into adolescent girls. It's called the Girl Effect, because girls are uniquely capable of investing in their communities and making the world better.
The Girl Effect movement – created by the Nike Foundation, the NoVo Foundation, the United Nations Foundation and The Coalition for Adolescent Girls – is about the unique and indisputable potential of adolescent girls to end poverty for themselves and the world. The Girl Effect is a collaborative movement of tons of amazing organizations and people who are passionate about alleviating poverty by investing in girls. It’s not one big campaign, but thousands of smaller ones acting in concert. Learn more about the Girl Effect and ways to help.
