Coronavirus affects us all, but for many girls around the world it means they won’t ever go back to school or complete their education. All too often girls are made to drop out of school and give up on their futures. Instead, they are at an increased risk of child marriage.
Sponsor a girl today and you can help her achieve her dreams.

Now the lasting impact of coronavirus is putting more girls at risk, as families who were already struggling lose their income.
HOW SPONSORSHIP HELPS GIRLS
WHEN YOU SPONSOR A GIRL, YOU HELP HER WHOLE COMMUNITY
Child marriage is a big problem in Antora’s community in Bangladesh. But thanks to child sponsorship, this 10-year-old girl doesn't fear marriage and is able to go to school.
She also attends a club that teaches her about her right to refuse child marriage, how handwashing can protect her from diseases and how to shelter safely if a disaster strikes. “I don’t think I will be married early. I like going to school!” She says.
Now more than ever, sponsors are needed to help girls like Antora continue learning through these tough circumstances.

YOU CAN HELP HER ACHIEVE HER DREAM
Every girl dreams of what she wants to be, but dreams are forgotten when you’re a girl with no choices in life.
Boys are more likely to go to school, while too many girls are being denied an education. Girls are being made to suffer FGM, forced to marry men up to three times their age, or have babies even though they’re still children themselves.
When you sponsor a girl, you can help her achieve her dream. And when your sponsored girl writes to you, she’ll tell you all about her dreams and you can encourage her to reach for them.
