Every Girl Counts

According to the African Development Bank, more girls in Africa are in school today than ever before. In fact, the number of girls in East Africa that are attending school has almost doubled in the last 10 years. This is promising news, and reason to celebrate!

However, the girls who are not currently in school, are also among the most vulnerable in all of Africa. Arranged marriages, teenage pregnancy, and forced child labor continue to be obstacles that these young women must avoid or escape in order to pursue a meaningful future.

Every girl that is able to avoid these barriers and continue her education defies the odds. Every one is significant to future of Africa. Every single one counts.

Four new girls were recently added to the Child Sponsorship Program at Action Two Africa. That’s four more girls who get a chance to pursue their dreams and create a meaningful future for themselves. Every girl counts, and we hope that you will join with us to help these young women pursue their goals through education. Your donation makes a real difference to them.

Every girl counts. We need you to step up, and support their education. We need them to step out into the world, and see all that it has to offer.
