No one is more vulnerable than an uneducated girl living in poverty. She is at risk for dropping out of elementary school, sexual violence, marrying early, becoming pregnant as a young teen, dying during childbirth, and contracting HIV/AIDS. If she survives, she will be raising her children in poverty and they too will be at risk. .
The Change Project
The Change project is an ongoing collections project where Power To Girls Foundation collects clothes,shoes, books, toys and monetary donations to support orphanages in Ghana. Pick-ups can be arranged for anyone interested in being a part of this project. All proceeds from the Change project goes directly to the orphans in Ghana. .

"When you Educate a girl ; you educate a nation"
Our Education Project
Our Education project is designed as a n in- depth discussion and research on how a girls self esteem is affected by her education or lack there of. This project aims to explore the different barriers to education for girls living in Ghana. In this project we will gather feedback in the form of questions and discussions to girls in public (government), private and rural schools. Through out the course of the project we would also speak to girls that have dropped out of school and to help them find the resources to get an education.
Why You Should Invest in Girls
Empowering women and girls raises economic productivity and reduces infant mortality. It contributes to improved health and nutrition, and increases the chances of education for the next generation. That’s why we are investing in one of the most effective ways to create a global shift at the grassroots level – life skills,mentorship, trainings and a relationship building for girls in Ghana and surrounding areas will give them the confidence and the boldness to raise their voices and to eliminate the culture of silence that often plagues their communities. Together With your support and our programs we will help girls to rise to their full potential as they lead their communities and countries forward.
