The future of our world is only as bright as our girls.

Right now, more than 98 million adolescent girls worldwide are not in school. That’s why the Global Girls Alliance, a program of the Obama Foundation, is teaming up with GoFundMe to encourage people around the world to take action by helping to break down the barriers that keep girls from fulfilling their potential.

Some of these barriers are child marriage or early pregnancy. But often they are attitudes and beliefs—the belief that girls simply aren’t worthy of an education; that women should have no role outside the home; and that their bodies aren’t their own, their minds don’t really matter, and their voices shouldn’t be heard.

When we invest in girls’ education, it doesn’t just benefit them—it benefits all of us. An educated girl can lift up her family, her community, and her country. When girls get the opportunities they deserve, amazing things start to happen. Poverty goes down, economies grow, families get stronger, babies are born healthier, and the world, by all accounts, gets better.

Working together, we can make a difference for these girls.

Your support can help begin to remove some of these obstacles by providing tools, resources, and support to organizations on the ground working to change the lives of girls around the world. Donations made to the Global Girls Alliance Fund will go toward projects ranging from mentoring girls in Uganda to hiring educators in India to covering school-related expenses for girls in Guatemala. The paths and techniques to support these girls may be different, but they all share a common goal: to ensure that adolescent girls are able to achieve an education and fulfill their potential.

Stay tuned here for updates on the Global Girls Alliance Fund and how it is making an impact on girls education around the world.
