Every girl deserves the opportunity to go to school, and with your help we can make that dream a reality!
At More Than Me we get girls off
the street and into school in one of the poorest slums in the world in
Liberia, West Africa. We work with community leaders to identify the
girls who are at the highest risk of being sexually exploited to ensure
that education and opportunity, not exploitation and poverty, define
their lives. Currently, we pay tuition, provide school lunch and work
with the school and community to make it impossible for her to fail.
It's working, 10% of our girls are 1st in their class! And on September 7th we will open our very own More Than Me Academy!
We need your help to make all of this possible!
name is Lauren Decker, and I am an aspiring Superwoman and the new
Creative Development Fellow for the More Than Me Academy! It has been my
life dream to work in Africa, and now it is my mission to help empower
girls to achieve theirs: the first step is education! My first goal is
to raise $5,000 so
we can support our girls' journeys to reach their dreams of going to
school. In September we will open the doors of our own school and over
the next 3 years our strategy and our dream is to open a boarding school
for the girls. With your help we can make their dreams-- and our vision-- a reality!
donation will help us take another step towards our ultimate goal of
providing education and choices for all girls.
