For the #DreamBigPrincess campaign, photographer @bananalawneh was inspired by the strong girls she met at the “Queen Rania Family and Child Centre” in Jordan. One girl she met, Menas, 8 wants to become a teacher in order to help other young girls become more confident in math. #FabFeministFriday #girlsinSTEM

Jerrine, 9, smiles as she picks out children’s books during a distribution at the Multipurpose Centre in St. John’s, capital of the island of Antigua. Books, clothes, shoes and other basic items are just some of the items needed by children and families displaced from Barbuda by Hurricane Irma.
Some 73,000 people in this area, including 20,000 children, are affected, and at least 132 schools have been damaged. You can support @unicefusa relief efforts for children in the #Caribbean and every donation counts. Check out the link in our bio for more.

We seeing girl leaders take center stage during #globalgoals week! Today Club members joined the @usyouthobserver at a Youth Leaders x World Leaders breakfast at the @unitednations.

Teen Advisor @angiejianggg and performer and activist @madamegandhi are #girlpower personified as they share a laugh on the #SocialGood Summit stage. They discussed how social media can be a way to mobilize offline movements, build empathy, and create positive narratives for women, while warning against the false narrative that can occur on social media valuing women for their looks and men for their skills sets. Thanks for joining in the important convo around tech for social impact with #2030Now.
The new school year is here and we're challenging YOU to kick it off right by fundraising for #SchoolCycle! A bike is so much than a bike for girls in Malawi who often have to drop out due to the hours-long journey to get to school. But a bike changes everything. It gives them wheels to a future. Will you join us and commit to fundraise for SchoolCycle? Donate or start your own fundraiser at the link in our bio. #Malawi
How do you get to school every day? For many girls in rural regions of Guatemala, the walk to school along the treacherous mountain paths can take hours. That's why Girl Up teamed with @jnjglobalhealth in support of #SchoolCycle. Because every girl deserves an education. You can make a difference by donating a #SchoolCycle bike to transform a girl's life. Learn more at the link in our bio.
