Girls deserve to go to school, not work

Watch this video to see how one girl’s life could be different if school was part of her day

Girl frowns

We see and hear about it too often — girls in impoverished communities around the world are going to work, rather than school; many don’t have a choice.

At Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, we’re working to ensure as many girls as possible have access to school. And, we’re training families and community members about why giving girls an education, rather than sending them into child labour or early, forced marriage will help the entire community thrive.

Watch the video from the TakePart production company and malala.org.

And, help by giving a gift to help a girl get an education.

Sharing is caring:

ABOUT CHILDREN BELIEVE (formerly Christian Children's Fund of Canada):

Children Believe works globally to empower children to dream fearlessly, stand up for what they believe in — and be heard. For 60 years, we’ve brought together brave young dreamers, caring supporters and partners, and unabashed idealists. Together, we’re driven by a common belief: creating access to education — inside and outside of classrooms — is the most powerful tool children can use to change their world.
