The Girl Effect

Have you heard of The Girl Effect?

It’s a movement on the rise.It’s no big deal…Just the future of humanity.

Why Girls?

“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 site is just the beginning.The end is nothing less than ending poverty.”

What can we do?

First, simply watch this 2 minutes presentation, a few animated words dancing at the rythm of our thoughts. Learn how:

  • Short
  • Simple

Presentations can be highly effective and powerful


Then share, speak about it and contribute to the ripple effect.

    Thank you so much for posting this! I did not know about the girl effect, but I’ve retweeted it to my readers.
    Thanks for giving such a compelling presentation to show how we can help girls!
    This is why I am writing my book, The Wild Woman’s Guide to Fundraising. I would like to have this book help women and girls all over the world empower themselves and their communities to succeed.
