b-activists: The Girl Effect has an effect on us
We’ve been fans of The Girl Effect for some time now. Just go to their site and click, “disagree.” They make absolute sense. See – they show how communities benefit when women are educated because these women statistically having less children and are more likely to educate their children. And on average, women reinvest 90 percent of their income into their family as compared to men who only reinvest 30-40 percent.
The campaign focuses on convincing you, organizations, funders, businesses and policymakers to invest in girls. Following the Girl Effect theory, if the lives of girls in the developing world improve, then so does the rest of the world. They believe these investments have the potential to end global poverty.
If you haven’t seen their video watch below, and when you’re done, donate and share the site with those you know, and those you don’t know- because as they say, the world is a mess, and you can be the one to help.
