FUNDRAISING FOR THE GIRL CHILD
FIGHTING THE EDUCATIONAL & ECONOMIC GENDER GAP
ONLY 24% OF RURAL INDIAN GIRLS RECEIVE A SECONDARY EDUCATION (PRAKASH 60)
Through applying social entrepreneurship, Fundraising for the Girl Child has financed the full secondary education and bicycle school transportation of hundreds of underprivileged rural girls. Moreover, the majority of our chapters have been inspiring keen passions in orphanage and refugee girls by giving them free classes in a variety of applied disciplines such as economics, politics, math, English, and more.
ONLY 13.76% OF INDIAN STARTUP ENTREPRENEURS ARE FEMALE (ORFONLINE)
Fundraising for the Girl Child has built partnerships with various organizations and corporations where we aim to mentor, help, and fund rural Indian women in implementing their own regional pad-making businesses to become economically empowered and fight the dangerous menstrual stigma. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the villages we were planning to implement pad-making businesses for became red-zoned. Therefore, we will execute our project as soon as it is safe to do so.

Fundraising for the Girl Child applies social entrepreneurship to elevate, educate, and empower girls and we fight the educational and economic gender gap. We are based in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, but we span across thirty global chapters. Fundraising for the Girl Child finances the education & bicycle school transportation of underprivileged rural girls in the remote villages of India as well as in the different home countries of our members. Our chapters also enable girls from underprivileged backgrounds to discover their intellectual passions by giving them free classes in a variety of subjects they do not have exposure to. We also host various events, conferences, and webinars impacting tens of thousands of young women and girls, particularly those interested in the economic and political empowerment of women. We perform such projects and education funding through our numerous initiatives including but not limited to our global group tutoring services and by publishing and marketing Hiya's Stress Relieving Mandala Designs book. We are so thankful!
