Kashmir Girls School

$2,698 of $6,500 goal

Raised by 24 people in 2 months
Global Citizen Journey is bringing a delegation to Kashmir in the fall.  We will join 10 US citizen diplomats with 12 from Kashmir and other parts of India to live and work together, learning about the challenges facing this struggling region.  We will bring our energy and support to a public school that has no clean water, no toilets, no windows, not even any flooring let alone teaching materials.  The more money we raise, the more we can help these two village schools.  Our work with the schools is directed through our wonderful local partners, ELFA International (Educational and Livelihood for All).  Our goal is to improve sanitary conditions so that girls can continue attending school throughout the month, including the days of their menstrual cycle, rather than missing a week of school each month.  Your donation will change their lives!

Fascinating and important article inspired by the work of Meghan Markle (yes - now a princess!): "Imagine a world where the female leaders we revere never achieved their full potential because they dropped out of school at the age of thirteen. In the Western world this is challenging to fathom, but for millions of young women globally, this remains their harsh reality for a staggering reason... the stigma surrounding menstruation and lack of access to proper sanitation directly inhibit young women from pursuing an education."

Your dollars will help us address this issue for girls in Kashmir. Please help spread the word about our fundraiser!

Thanks to our initial donors, we are on our way to raising the needed funds: It is thrilling to read this article by the new princess of England, Meghan Markle, on the importance of Menstrual education and liberation: http://time.com/4694568/meghan-markle-period-stigma/ YES! This is what we aim to do for the girls in these rural villages.
