creating a new reality for girls in poverty

Sponsor a Girl to Stay in School

Our Girls Education Program continues to grow in size and strength, with more than 1,300 girls in 30 villages now involved and receiving tutoring, school supplies and academic-career guidance.

As of June, 2019, 770 girls in our Girls Education Program have monthly sponsors. Please join us as a $35 monthly sponsor to help empower one girl to stay in school, out of child marriage, and on track for success.

Your generous support will catalyze the work of justice.

Speak Up exists to transform the world on behalf of the poor, particularly girls in poverty. We serve more than 1,300 girls in 30 villages, helping them stay in school and out of child marriage, and fund more than 20 girls removed from brothels in Bangladesh. Hundreds more receive some academic support, or remain on our waiting list. In total, nearly 1,500 girls and their families are served by our work.

Your donation will help these programs grow, and allow us to reach even more girls in poverty in Bangladesh.

Thank you for your generous support!
