Girls Rights Project

Posted September 27, 2019 from United States

I founded the Girls Rights Project because I knew there were not enough people funding efforts to help girls who were not getting to live the lives they deserved.  We fund anti trafficking efforts, girls education, legal help for girls and girls leadership and empowerment.  I have been lucky to visit India, Burma, Cambodia, Rwanda and other countries as well as to be a CASA mentor in my local community.  I believe the world is full of young women and girls ready to help their own communities.  I am inspired by the change I see but also frustrated by the leadership of too many countries which prevent change from happening (our own included!). I know that when girls are given the education, resources and protection they need they can do wonders.  Let's all help them this Day of the Girl Child!

Hi Stacey,
This is such important work. The more we can find funding to get girls into schools, the closer we are toward all we are working toward here, together. Do you have funding sources that would allow your organization to post in the Resource section under Offers? I see seeking funds from people/sources who are able to offer, as such a practical way to strengthen the lives of girls everywhere. Your organization is inspiring.

Hi Stacey,
Welcome to World Pulse and thank you for the great work you are doing! It is so important because we know that when we empower women and girls, everything changes. The pace of change is frustrating, but the world is waking up and more change is happening every day. We can never let up on the awareness and pressure around this issue. Thank you, Stacey!
