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

•   About 41% of brides are younger than 18 yrs. old in Eastern Part of Turkey
•   82% can’t read or write, and they end up giving birth in child ages to many others
•   They have dreams, and potential to become lawyers, teachers, engineers. If only we can light the path and help to ease poverty and socioeconomic barriers.

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:

1.   You can share our voice for a call to action with your friends, community.
2.   You can support one of the existing teams and contribute to fundraising.
3.   You can run to raise funds in your city.

Donation Amount: 

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.

Our circle of compassion promotes respect and fellowship for humankind in the communities we serve.
