The "Leave No Girl Behind Movement" is pleased to announce the launch of the website dedicated to empowering girls and young women.
According to "The Leave No Girl Behind Movement" founder Haseena Patel, "Right now there are 600 million girls worldwide who may or may not have their basic needs met; who may or may not receive any formal education in their lives. These girls will grow up and be dependent on others to survive. They will marry for financial security, and bear children – as primary caregivers, they will spend most of their time with their children, and yet not have the means to educate their children. Some of these women will become widows and not have the means to feed and clothe their children. Some of their children will grow up and be indoctrinated by other adults and engage in terrorist activities."
The Leave No Girl Behind Movement has 4 functions:
To empower girls around the world through our programs (such as the Leadership Program and Worldwide Network, and the Help-Her-Help-Herself Project).
To raise awareness worldwide about why it is essential for us as a global community to empower girls (we do this through our soon-to-be-published book, Leave No Girl Behind, a collection of successful women and men who have written powerful messages to the young women of tomorrow.).
To create a community of like-minded individuals working together to uplift girls everywhere (our Facebook community, "http://www.facebook.com/leavenogirlbehind" http://www.facebook.com/leavenogirlbehind is the starting point for this).
To stand united with every individual and organization worldwide that shares this common purpose – together we can make a difference in the lives of our global family of 6 billion!
Haseena Patel further commented, "It is girls’ choices that will determine the future of our planet. But it is your choices that will influence girls. The truth of the matter is that it all begins with you – in your home, your community, your state, your country, your continent and the world. This may be the potential story of millions of girls right now. If we are to transform our world we must begin with the life of a girl.
The "Leave No Girl Behind" movement is dedicated to empowering ALL girls worldwide, irrespective of their nationality or situation because we believe that by one candle lighting another, the whole world will become illuminated.
