I happened upon this site by chance and was, frankly, moved by its simple message: save the world by helping a single girl. The Girl Effect began with the Nike corporation, but it also includes people from non-profits and government organizations. Together, they operate on the premise that by raising one girl out of poverty in countries throughout the world, the ripple effect will bring positive change to their whole communities. Multiply that by a few hundred thousand, and spread it across the planet, and the Girl Effect could improve life worldwide.
