She’s the First sponsors girls' education in the developing world so they can be the first in their family to graduate.
What are you the first in your family to do? Or what are you the first in your company, school, community, or the world to achieve? Chances are, you would have never broken those barriers if you hadn't first received an education. Did you know that millions of girls around the world aren't that lucky? Only one in five will have the chance to graduate from high school. You can make a transformative difference by helping even one girl.
With the help of creative fundraisers like you, She’s the First sponsors girls' education in the developing world so they can be the first in their families to graduate from secondary school; in the process, we shape the next generation of global leaders in the U.S., too.
We partner with eight international NGOs to sponsor the world’s most vulnerable girls, and we nurture nearly 30 campus chapters at colleges, universities, and high schools, which organize awareness and fundraising activities. Ultimately, we harness technology and social media to connect students worldwide like never before, in mutually beneficial relationships.
