Raise your voice. Lend your hand.
Let’s make some noise together in 2015! At least two-thirds of uneducated children in the world today are girls. There are many reasons why, but one of the biggest is extreme poverty. Join our efforts to end the injustice of gender bias in education. Improve access to quality education for girls around the world. Make investing in her potential a priority.
YES! She Matters.
Starting is easy.
Sign and send a letter to The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau urging the Canadian government to strengthen its existing support for the education of girls within the global community.
Make some more noise! Get others involved in the cause. Raise awareness and funds by becoming an advocate in the grassroots! See some of our ideas and tell us some of yours.
What is She Matters?
Without access to educational opportunities, girls are at a higher risk to become marginalized and exploited. She is more likely to contract HIV and AIDS and has a higher chance of dying during childhood than her educated female peers. She is also less likely to own land, get a decent job, have a say in society or break out of the crushing cycle of poverty.
CBM believes that gender bias in education is a social injustice. We desire to see all children have the opportunity to learn and thrive. Help us provide innovative programming where girls are given equal opportunities to develop their gifts and abilities. Help them reach their full, God-given potential.
Participate! She Matters.
