SOUMYA, 14, is stopping girls from dropping out of school by creating awareness on menstruation. But she herself needs financial support to continue her education. Help 25 Girl Icons like Soumya @₹20,000 each.

Soumya was selected as a Girl Icon due to her passion to change her community. 25 Girl Icons just like her from challenging backgrounds, received 4 weeks of training over their 2-year journey.
A Girl Icon forms a peer group of 20 girls, who collectively fight social injustice. They each initiate action on the issues they identify, via social action projects. So far 75 community action projects have been completed by these 25 girls.

All it takes is a little bit from everyone!

Thank you for your donation! People like you are creating a new generation of givers

WHY EDUCATING GIRL ICONS MATTER

Education empowers girls to be agents of change. It transforms them into powerful Leaders. Educating girls pulls families out of poverty, improving the lives of generations. It leads to increased income, better health, and less crime impacting entire communities. The Girl Icon program builds leaders who fight to create a more equal and inclusive world. For more information on how we build inspirational girls leaders, please visit our website.

Each of the Girl Icons form peer groups as part of the programme.
THE PLAN

Your support means they continue their education. Each of the 25 girls submits a plan on how they will use the INR 20,000 grant. A verification process is then carried out and the grants are disbursed into the girls' own bank accounts. The girls’ submit bills for larger expenses such as books, admission & tuition fees. When all is said and done you will be proud to have supported these remarkable girls, because they are changing the world.

Community engagement is a vital part of the Girl Icon programme.
