One Girl was inspired by a chance meeting with a 14 year old girl named Brenda. A girl who had been wandering the streets and asking strangers for help to pay for her school fees. After hearing Brenda’s story, we knew we had to help. But we didn’t want to stop there. Why stop at one girl when there are over 130 million girls around the world who are denied the opportunity to go to school?
We’ve started our work in Sierra Leone and Uganda, two of the most challenging places on earth to be born a girl.
