“Doctor, lawyer, pilot.” – Kathy Calvin, UN Girl UP Campaign

“Today I am full of gratitude for those who make it more possible for girls the world over to receive a proper education.”

Dear DR MEEK,

Girl UpDoctor. Lawyer. Pilot. These were the dreams of young girls I met when I traveled to Liberia with the United Nations Foundation’s Girl Up campaign.These girls are full of potential, but poverty often works against them.  Many families can’t afford the school supplies and uniforms they need to send their daughters to school.  In fact, 40 percent of girls in Liberia 10-14 years of age have never received a formal education.Every girl deserves an education and the chance to follow her dreams.  As students in the U.S. return to class, will you help girls in Liberia do the same? Donate $10 by August 31 to help girls in Liberia get an education.

With support of people like you, Girl Up and the United Nations launched a program in Liberia in 2011 to provide adolescent girls with school supplies, basic literacy and math classes, skills training, and more.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 by August 31 so more girls in Liberia can receive these vital services.  Will you help us by donating $10 today?

Educating girls benefits us all: When a girl is educated, she can earn more, helping lift her family out of poverty, boosting her country’s economic growth, and contributing to a more stable and prosperous world.

It’s simple: Educating a girl can change her life and change our world.  Join me today in helping girls in Liberia get an education and pursue their dreams.

Thank you,

Kathy Calvin
