I, along with United World Schools, believe that every child has the right to an education. However, it is estimated that 129 million girls worldwide are missing out; something which is only worsening due to the Covid-19 pandemic. All children, no matter their gender, should have access to the same opportunities and by supporting female education worldwide, we can empower girls so that they can choose to be whoever they want to be, and create whatever future they want for themselves.

Any donation, no matter how big or how small, will support the journey towards providing girls worldwide with an education. United World Schools aim to build schools, train local teachers and partner with local governments to ensure that every child can go to school and learn. They also work to keep girls in school by providing proper hygiene and sanitation facilities, educating teachers on equality and implicit bias and by helping girls to find their voice and advocate for themselves.
