We empower girls to reach for the stars

Watch the CBC Arts video to recall the value of encouragement

Girl frowns

We understand how important it is to empower girls around the world, so we’re encouraged by poet Britta B’s spoken word in the CBC Arts video below.

“It’s OK to shine. It’s OK to have pride,” she says. “Don’t let the violence fool you into silence, convincing you that you are not worthy of space and time.”

At Children Believe, we promote equality for girls by developing their knowledge, skills, confidence and leadership abilities so they can be a voice for positive change in their communities and truly shine.

You can help. Watch the video below, and visit our gift catalogue to send a girl to school for a year.

Sharing is caring:


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.
