Help girls access a secondary education to lay the foundation for a lifetime of success and economic empowerment.
GROW (Girls' Right to Opportunity Worldwide) is a GreaterGood.org Signature Program committed to removing barriers that prevent girls across the globe from attaining their right to quality education. Barriers include, but are not limited to, lack of access to school, quality educators, inability to cover costs to attend and pay for school-related supplies, health-related concerns, lack of menstrual hygiene products, and unequal gender constructs that are reinforced through education systems. Through partnerships with quality international organizations in multiple countries, we assist local leaders on the ground to tackle their most prominent needs related to girls' education.
To help families cover the costs of secondary education, GreaterGood's GROW program is providing funding for tuition, books, uniforms, and whatever is standing in the way for these girls in need, wherever they are.
You can help. Every bit helps keep a young girl in school.
Update from the Field
In our global partnership with organizations around the world, we’ve identified a few main barriers to quality education that reach far beyond tuition assistance. Other primary initiatives include safe transportation, menstrual hygiene, quality of education, proper nutrition, early child marriage, and gender inequity. Together, we have improved the lives of thousands of girls around the world. We are committed to expanding our reach and efforts to more children and young women in need. Join us in our continuing efforts to help girls receive a quality education!
