Like Jennifer, there are thousands of other girls that need our help. Rise4Girl is an initiative that aims to provide 500 girls in India with education. Rise4Girl is an initiative by HELP Trust to educate a Girl Child is an innovative program to educate, equip and empower girls from poor and marginalized families across Tamil Nadu and create social ambassadors in the community. Investing in Girl Child education brings high returns in terms of breaking the cycle of poverty and aiding economic growth. It also improves children's and women's survival rates and health, delays child marriage and early pregnancies, enlightens women both at home and at the workplace.
We want to impact the lives of 500 girl children by raising funds to cover their tuition expenses for the upcoming academic year. Thus the purpose of Rise4Girl is to provide support to avoid school dropouts, to fulfill their dream of going to school, complete higher education, achieve their life goals and create a change in society. Educating a girl child helps to spread awareness on basic rights (Right to survival, protection, participation, and development) among orphaned girls, girls with a single parent, or from extremely poor families in Tamil Nadu.
