Changing the world, one girl at a time.

Pakistan’s total literacy rate is a dismal 50%, while only 36% of Pakistani women are literate. Yet we know that when we educate girls, we empower them. And when we empower girls, we can change the world. We built the Sonia Shah School for girls in Kangra, Pakistan, where currently only 3 out of 10 girls ever go to school. We are concurrently working to open a much-needed clinic in the village.

You can help by getting involved! Help us cover the costs of running a school and opening a clinic by giving what you can. Or sponsor the full education and health needs of one student for a full year for just $300.
