The Girl Effect

The Girl Effect is the powerful social and economic change brought about when girls have the opportunity to participate in their society.

Adolescent girls are uniquely capable of raising the standard of living in the developing world.

Girls are the most likely agents of change, but they are often invisible to their societies and to our media.

When everyone -- girls, parents, teachers, executives, artists, hairdressers, forest rangers, rock stars, presidents, investors, advertisers, skateboarders, truckers, cowboys, organizations, chefs, teenagers -- knows about The Girl Effect, then real change can happen.

The Girl Effect site is just the beginning. The end is nothing less than ending poverty with CARE!
