The Girl Effect

I had to post this magnificent video here. It's heartbreaking and uplifting and beautiful. I can't stop watching it.

I've written about what life is like for women having giving birth in rural Uganda. If we are going to help women, we need to start with girls. They need freedom, education, empowerment and opportunity. The revolution will be led by a 12-year-old girl. I love this.

This is exactly the message we tried to communicate when I worked at CARE USA (by the way, have you tried applying to them for funding?).

Am going to send this video to my friends who still work there in case they haven't seen it - thanks!
