Today, girls encounter significant obstacles to their well-being and success, particularly around teen pregnancy, high school completion, body image, and preventing violence. Too often, girls are overlooked and undervalued by the outside world...
1 in 4 girls will not graduate high school
1 in 5 girls will be a victim of childhood sexual abuse
3 in 10 girls will become pregnant before the age of 20
78% of girls under 17 are unhappy with their bodies
Yet, with Girls Inc. in their corner, girls boldly exclaim they are strong, prepared to finish school on time, healthy, and excited to take charge of their futures. When you support Girls Inc., you are more than investing in girls' futures, you are telling them there is someone in their corner who believes in their strength and ability.
Fuel Her Fire, and She Will Change the World
Girls Incorporated of Greater Atlanta inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold through teaching girls to manage money, deal with peer pressure, critically examine the media, and develop a love of science and math. These programs equip girls to navigate gender, economic and social barriers allowing them to break the cycle of poverty, achieve academic success and become healthy, educated and independent adults. Through our intentional and compensatory programs, we are building a generation of financially stable, competent and empowered girls.
