What is Girl Up?
Girl Up is a gender equality organization that works under the United Nations foundation to make sure that girls in developing countries are healthy, safe, and educated. Since 2010, they have raised $7.2 million to give girls the opportunity to go to school, see a doctor, and stay safe from violence. There are currently 1,330 Girl Up clubs across the world, and campus chapters can be found on 99 colleges and universities, from Yale and Brown University to colleges in Tunisia and Mexico.
Girl Up focuses on 4 main developing countries, Ethiopia, Guatemala, India, and Liberia. Girl Up wants YOU to take action and make a difference in a life of a girl in these countries. Host fundraisers and spread awareness in your community to support Girl Up!
