Education is such a powerful tool but unfortunately is not something all children have access to, particularly girls in developing countries. 66 million girls around the world are not in school. Making a difference to these girls is something we have always been passionate about, and we are excited that we are now able to do so through our partnership with One Girl.
A girl born in Sierra Leone is more likely to be raped than she is to go to high school.
Using education to break this cycle not only influences these young girls, but also their families and wider community. An educated woman will invest 90% of her income into her family.
Every time you buy a coffee at Freckleduck, you can make a difference. For every 3000 coffees sold, a girl in Africa will be educated for a year.
10 cents from every coffee is donated to One Girl, who support young girls in Sierra Leone and Uganda. In the first month of our partnership we were able to put two girls through school for a year. We are excited for our partnership to continue to grow and see the difference we can make in 2016.
Together with One Girl, we’re changing the world one girl at a time.
