Every girl should have the freedom to dream and face the future with hope. But many still live in constant fear of violence, simply because they are girls. Now is a chance to change that.
When you sponsor a girl, you contribute to a movement that fosters lasting change. Your support not only provides access to education, healthcare, and essential resources but also helps break down the barriers of fear that hold girls back from reaching their full potential.
Together, we can transform lives, inspire communities, and ensure that every girl knows she has the power to shape her own destiny.
Imagine what the world would be like if #GirlsCan be free from fear
Let's come together to create a world where every girl can thrive, where fear is replaced with hope, and where girls and women are celebrated for their strength and abilities.
Help build a virtuous cycle of empowerment through sponsorship.
Did you know that
One in six Filipino girls is married off before they turn 18.
Seventeen percent of Filipino women aged 15-49 have experienced physical violence, and only 34% of victims seek help.
As of 2020, the Philippines ranks 10th in the total number of child marriages.
Sponsorship can help a girl break free from the cycle of poverty. Empower vulnerable girls to rewrite their stories by providing them the right tools to overcome adversity.
We work to provide girls with better access to education. We also supply basic school supplies to supplement learning and relieve families of financial burdens linked to education.
Health and Nutrition
We initiate projects to ensure families eat nutritious food, have access to clean water, enjoy quality health services, and are well-informed about infectious diseases.
We inform girls of their rights and train community members on child protection issues. Our interventions provide timely and appropriate responses to identified cases of child abuse.
We provide families with tools to earn a living. We educate parents about financial literacy, savings, and investments.
Your sponsorship can help girls gain an education – which has a ripple effect.
Improved health and well-being – Educated girls are more likely to make informed decisions about their health, leading to better maternal and child health outcomes.
Economic empowerment – When girls acquire valuable skills and knowledge through education, they become better equipped to enter the workforce and contribute to their local economies.
Poverty reduction – Not only do women earn more when they get an education, they use that money to invest in their families and children.
Financial development – According to studies, when 10% more girls in a given country finish school, that country’s gross domestic product can increase by 3 percent.3 This means a higher standard of living for everyone in the country, not just for individual girls.

Sponsorship creates a unique connection that can build a child’s confidence, happiness, and hope. Knowing they have a sponsor who cares can have a huge impact on a child.
