About

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, defines their lives. We pay tuition, provide school lunch and we 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! 

We need your help though!

My 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 girl's journeys to reach their dreams of going to school. Our boarding school is in the works, but far from finished. With your help we can make their dreams-- and our vision-- a reality!

Every donation will help us take another step towards our ultimate goal of providing education for all girls. Thank you so much for your support!!
