The Girl Effect

It’s September. School is starting again and I’m thinking of the Girl Effect.  Getting girls into secondary school in rural Sierra Leone, and keeping them there, is at the core of Sherbro Foundation’s work.

If I ever stop to think of why I put my personal effort into working on this, I only have to be reminded of one thing.

The Girl Effect.

The message is simple. “Invest in a girl, and she will do the rest.”

She’ll invest in her family and community.  With millions of girls in the world, that’s millions of chances to make the world a much better place.  I like those odds  – and return on my investment – when compared to most other development programs.

But I don’t need to explain it. This video says it all.   Click here:  The Girl Effect   

“If you change the prospects of an adolescent girl on a big enough scale, you will transform societies.”
