Let Girls Read, Run, Grow is an initiative working to support the development of African adolescent girls through education, athletics and entrepreneurship. Globally, girls face many challenges that can deter their access to education and opportunities to grow beyond their circumstances. Through forces beyond their control, many lack the support needed to thrive. We know that educating girls transforms families, communities and generations. When girls participate in athletics, they lead healthier lives both physically and mentally. Entrepreneurship through farming, the girls gain the skills and knowledge to break the cycle of poverty and strengthen their communities. Our programs focus on empowering the whole self of each adolescent girl we touch. We choose to develop her socially, physically, and financially such that she has a solid foundation with a fighting chance. By honing in on three areas we see women lacking opportunities in worldwide, we hope to close the gap in opportunity for girls and increase the tangible potential for each life we touch.
