Light the Path to Education … We are running to send a girl to school
As supporters of gender equality in Anatolian Turkey, and basic human & education rights, we want to increase awareness about child marriage as a problem and raise funds to enable school-age girls at risk in rural areas to go to school. Together, we can give these girls the opportunities they need to fulfill their potential
We can’t accomplish this mission alone, we need your voice, activism, and your hearts to make a difference in these kids’ lives.
How you can help:
We are open to all levels of donations, whatever level you can support, or afford. $45 provides support for one child pre-college, per month and $90 for a college for a month.
