The Girl Effect

I am a teacher.

My husband is a teacher.

My parents were teachers.

When the troubles of the world smack me in the face, I wonder what I can do.

What I decide to do, is teach.

  • I teach my children compassion and to value the choices that come with education.
  • I teach my students not only the scientific method and biological facts, but to doubt until they’ve evaluated information and verified the source.
  • I will teach them all to understand how lucky they are, to live in a country where education is free (for at least 13 years), and hope that we all look for ways to send resource to girls around the world who AREN’T able to go to school.

I’m part of a blogging campaign called “The Girl Effect“. “The Girl Effect” is a powerful idea:

By investing in girls in the developing world, we make an incredibly effective investment in eradicating poverty, creating thriving communities, and slowing the spread of AIDS.

Lots of bloggers are posting today about the girl effect, the list can be found here, click over to read more about it. If you’d like to learn more about how girls around the world need education, and how the world would be effected if they were, click here. If you’d like to write a post about this yourself, please do, and add your link here.

Small steps, they could add to something significant.
