the girl effect.

i’m excited to travel to ethiopia in a couple weeks! our base is cooperating with the norwegian government to build schools in villages where girls would otherwise need to walk up to 2 hours to attend school. when they are forced to walk so far to receive education, many girls are abducted and raped. building schools in strategic areas cuts down on abduction and forced marriages.

i love that this organization is focusing on bettering the quality of girl’s lives. check out: the girl effect for more information.
