International Day of the Girl

Happy International Day of the Girl! Massai girl

This is the second year of the UN celebration International Day of the Girl. Theme for 2013: Innovating for Girls’ Education. Meanwhile, check out two of my favorite groups that work with girls abroad:

1) Women Work Together, www.womenworktogether.org, partners with Mujeres Trabajan Unidas to provide leadership and education programs to delay too early marriage and motherhood for rural Mayan girls in Guatemala and

2) Akili Dada, www.akilidada.org, a leadership incubator for high-achieving young African women from underprivileged backgrounds who are passionate about social change.
