EducateGirls is a new Non-Government Organization designed to provide aid, education and support for young girls in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Established in 2009, we have worked in conjunction with UNICEF and local organizations to provide funding for all-girls schools within the region. In addition, our goal has been to provide support for girls currently attending public schools in order to ensure that pressure from their community, family and peers does not discourage them from attaining a successful education.
We have worked on over 70 schools across 20 states, and have succeeded in ensuring that over 85% of our recipients have managed to attain secondary-degree education. As a result, these young women have managed to attain higher-paying jobs and give back more to their communities, providing long lasting benefits for their families.
