Empower Her Through Education
Guiding Stars – Help Girls Find Their Way
Millions of girls are out of school in the developing world. Violence, hunger, child marriage, or simply the belief that girls aren’t worth teaching are barriers that keep them from getting an education.
CARE is helping communities and girls break down these barriers, and we are partnering with the Alba Botanica®, Avalon Organics® and JASÖN® brands to do it.
Together we are unlocking girls potential, advocating for their rights, and standing with mothers and communities to help shape brighter futures.
To highlight our commitment, we have started the Qach’Umilal program in the community of Chirijcalbal, in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. Qach’Umilal (which means Guiding Star in the indigenous language of K’iche) is an afterschool program where girls spend time together with mentors and teachers, learning leadership skills and building their self-esteem through group activities, songs and discussions.
Our belief is that with a little help, these girls will find their way to a brighter future. And you can help. Donate to support this program today.
