About the Cause 

Free to Live






Every day, young girls are taken advantage of and put through harmful, dangerous and horrific circumstances. Girls who are not given the opportunity to get an education are sent down a road leading to sex-trafficking, forced and early marriage or sexual abuse. Way too often, women are married off and raped because they are perceived as invaluable objects.
The Solution

This week, we are working with Girl Up to change the future for young girls in Liberia. Instead of the harsh realities they could face while outside of school, Girl Up provides girls with an education, including scholarships, supplies and uniforms, so they can have a better life and more successful future.


Girl Up


Girl Up, a campaign of the United Nations Foundation, provides a platform for youth to channel their energy and compassion to raise awareness and funds for programs of the United Nations that help some of the world’s hardest-to-reach adolescent girls. Through Girl Up’s support, girls have the opportunity to become educated, healthy, safe, counted and positioned to be the next generation of leaders. Go to GirlUp.org to learn more.
