The Girl Effect

The Girl Effect

Funded largely by the Nike and NoVo foundations, the Girl Effect initiative works to help adolescent girls in developing countries bring social and economic change to their families, communities, and countries. The main feature of the Girl Effect Web site is a video about the advantages of investing in girls worldwide that can be e-mailed, bookmarked, and/or embedded in blogs and on other Web sites. The site also offers videos of four girls who have benefited from such efforts, a downloadable fact sheet, and information about how to make a difference.
