The purpose of life is not to be happy — but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all. ~Leo Rosten
I have not put this quote just because it looks fancy, but because the meaning behind it is so important for all of us to understand. We live our lives so mechanically, some of us find pleasure in that, some of us don't. Either ways we are not living but letting life pass by us, wither away like it were a pretty flower, but that's not why we were born, we are born to make a difference, So now you must ask yourself, what will your legacy be, what will you leave the world when you are gone? Do you want your name to last through the ages and be remembered? Because I believe that is the very least you deserve.
Support Girl in Yellow Foundation, a project of Child United, a registered 501c3 non-profit organization, and we’re working to support under-served girls in rural villages, by providing scholarships that will allow them to continue their education and complete their schooling. As often is the case, young girls, sometimes not even in their teens, are removed from the school system, placed into arranged marriages, and have children of their own.
We believe that education is the key toward invoking positive change within the rural community, by increasing gender equality, reducing teenage marriage, lowering birth rates, and reducing the cycle of poverty.
With your help, we will provide financial assistance for tuition, books, testing materials, and other necessities needed to continue their education from 8th-12th standard. Girls who express an interest for higher education will then be eligible to receive assistance for college.
