The Thousand Girls Initiative:
A Major Expansion of the Rise Youth Development Program
Help empower a new generation of educated Guatemalan women! The Thousand Girls Initiative is a massive expansion of the Rise Youth Development Program that will help 1,000 girls and 250 boys across the country rise out of poverty for good.
Never Forgetting the Boys
Why include 250 boys in the Thousand Girls Initiative? We believe that all children born into the cycle of poverty deserve the opportunity to rise above their current circumstances. Plus, when girls and boys learn together, they learn from each other, too.
Supported by Rotary
This initiative has been brought to life through collaboration with Rotary clubs, districts, and individual support around the world. To learn more about Rotary’s involvement, visit the Guatemala Literacy Project (GLP).
