Educate a girl
Girls in rural Africa face challenges getting an education.
Without access to clean water, good toilets and sanitary towels, girls can miss up to a week of lessons every month when they are on their period. They fall behind in class, and can be forced to drop out of school altogether.
Your gift could give girls a fair chance with access to clean water and toilets, so that they can manage their periods with dignity. And teachers trained to bring out the best in the girls, helping them excel and go on to secondary school.
How it works
Each alternative gift includes a beautiful postcard recognising the contribution made in the recipient's name. It describes how the gift will support education in the communities we work with.
- Choose an alternative gift
- If you'd like your gift sent directly to a friend: add a personal message in the box below (to be handwritten on your behalf), then tell us their address on the next page
- Or, we can deliver a blank card straight to you, so you can add your own greeting
All of our gifts represent aspects of real long-term projects in rural Africa. As the need for funding and support can change within each community we partner with, your gift will be used wherever it is needed most.
