By the time they turn 15, a quarter of the girls in the world have experienced physical violence. That’s 70 million girls who have already lived through dangerous situations. Often, physical violence is one of the biggest barriers girls face when getting an education, meaning that even the walk to and from school each day can be life-threatening.
The Solution Offered by Girl Up
This week, Sevenly is partnering with Girl Up to support their School Cycle program. Girl Up will provide bicycles to girls in Guatemala, so that they can travel to school safely and quickly. Something as simple as a bicycle can empower a girl to obtain her education and Girl Up is committed to helping girls around the world stay safe while they achieve their goals!
