There are about 750 million adolescent girls living in developing countries. And for too many of them, the chance to go to school, stay healthy, and live free from violence is out of reach. Girl Up is a campaign that mobilizes girls to raise awareness and funds for United Nations programs providing girls around the world with life-changing opportunities—giving them a chance to go to school, see a doctor, and stay safe from violence. Through its teen advisory board, nationwide network of Girl Up clubs, and online constituents, Girl Up has rallied nearly half a million supporters to stand up for the rights of girls everywhere.
More than 2 million children in Guatemala do not attend school. Girl Up supports adolescent girls in Guatemala by funding a joint United Nations program that provides holistic educational and health services with the help of national partners and implementing organizations. These programs help these girls by addressing, and helping them to overcome, the complex challenges that limit their opportunities for success.
The Global Moms Relay is an opportunity to share stories of motherhood that inspire action to help improve the lives of mothers and children everywhere.
From May 1 to June 19, 2015 (just before Mother’s Day through Father’s Day), every few days a celebrity, community leader, or everyday mom and dad, will share a personal story on the kind of future they want for their family and the world, and then “pass the baton” to the next contributor.
Every time you share a story, Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 (per action), up to $300,000, to the Global Moms Relay, to help improve the health and well-being of moms and kids worldwide in support of MAMA, Shot@Life, UNICEF and Girl Up.Visit the Girl Up site
