EMPOWER A GIRL,
CHANGE THE WORLD
“The world is missing out on one of its most precious commodities – the power and strength of women, who make up more than half the world’s assets. Our investment in girls and young women now can reap huge benefits. By doing so, we build better communities, better relationships, better businesses, and a better world overall.” Jane Stephens Comer, GirlSpring Founder
