CHARITY IN THE SPOTLIGHT: ONE GIRL
As you know, here at The Daily Guru we’re all about shining a big, bright light on the brilliant gurus, thought leaders and game changers from the personal growth, biz and wellbeing spaces. You know, those sought-after yogis, entrepreneurs, health professionals, coaches, authors and spiritual mentors who are showing us the way when it comes to living and feeling our very best.
While we’re at it, we’ve decided to move the spotlight once a month onto some of our favourite charities and not-for-profit organisations that are also empowering women around the world with the support, rights and resources they need to remain resilient — and grow — in the face of troubling times.
This is our opportunity to use our wonderful platform to raise awareness about many important causes and encourage you, The Daily Guru tribe, to reach out, connect and show your support for the organisations that resonate with you.
This month, we’re introducing you to One Girl, which is on a mission to education one million girls across Africa by 2020.
“There are many things that will prevent a girl being educated. But when it comes down to it, the truth is, millions of girls are prevented from going to school, simply because they were born a girl,” the organisation says.
“We believe every girl on the planet deserves the opportunity to go to school. No matter where she is born, what her family earns, what religion she adheres to or what her culture says.
“Every girl deserves the opportunity to learn, grow and be the best she can be.”
Whether her barriers are poverty, pregnancy or being sold into marriage, education can change everything.
You can support One Girl by fundraising, becoming an Ambassador, joining the team, or donating. You can find out more about how to get involved, here.
