Education for Girls

Shop in Support of Education for Girls

I support education for girls with my art because I had choices, I was lucky, I had a college education, I got to chose.

I can not for one minute imagine NOT HAVING A CHOICE!!!! But there are so many girls (and boys too) but mostly girls that due to tradition or religion don’t get to chose.

Read about why I have taken on the challenge of raise funds in Support of Education for Girls.

The Girl Effect

My preferred charities that work specifically on Education for Girls are:

Because I am a Girl

A donation to Because I am a Girl gives you the multiplier effect because girls use their resources to support not only themselves, but their families and communities.

  • Educate a girl, and she will share her knowledge with everyone she knows
  • Feed a girl, and she will feed and nurture everyone around her.
  • Empower a girl – she’ll change the world!
  • You can help change the world for – and through – girls everywhere.

Education For Girls

Visit Education for Girls website

  • Two-thirds of the world’s 880 million illiterate adults are women.
  • Girls are more than 70 percent of the 125 million children who don’t have a school to attend.
  • Significantly more girls than boys enrolled in the first grade fail to complete the first cycle of primary school.

Social traditions and deep-rooted religious and cultural beliefs are most often the barriers to expanding girls’ educational opportunities in undeveloped countries around the world.

Here’s how it works:
When you purchase a piece from this page I will make a $100 donation to one of the education for girls charities for each piece sold. Then I will send you the link (if available) or a copy of the receipt.

Please contact me if you have any questions. Galleries that are interested in carrying this work, the donation amounts to less than a 20% discount which I am happy to split. Your inquires are welcome
