This International Day of the Girl – CARE invites you to see the world “through the eyes of a girl.”  Open your eyes, and learn through their words, pictures and stories, the triumphs and challenges that girls face around the world in pursuit of their education, and what YOU can do to help them. We’ve created these digital post cards for you to download and share with Members of Congress. It’s time to thank our leaders who have helped fight poverty and save lives.
