Pickychick Notes: A Thought At Thanksgiving

25 Nov

I hope you’re all out there having a wonderful holiday with family and/or friends and are safe and happy!
As this blog focuses on adolescent girls and continuing positive education and development for them, I thought I might throw a little something up here to think about.

http://www.girleffect.org/
This is the Girl Effect, an organization that focuses on keeping young impoverished girls in school, which makes each girl exponentially more likely to stay out of child marriage and thus less likely to contract HIV, die in early childbirth, or enter into prostitution. It also increases her children’s chances of being born healthy and staying in school themselves–thus continuing the cycle.

They have this cool animated video that is really interesting, and as now is the season for giving thanks, I encourage you all to check it out.

Happy Thanksgiving!
