Invest in Girls Today
The Umbrella of Hope envisions a future in which every girl gets a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. In most parts of rural Uganda, girls miss out on school, become child brides and are denied the most basic of health services. Girls deserve to be empowered, and make their own choices in life. Girls’ education is key in keeping girls on the path to success. We all succeed when girls are given the opportunities to succeed. Join the conversation and empower girls with #Hope.
