4 Selfless Selfies Make All The Difference
#Selfies4School has taken social media by storm (see below), and it’s for a very good cause! Did you know that 1 in 3 girls in the developing world will be married before the age of 18? And that 6 out of 10 girls in India cannot spell their own names? These disturbing statistics need to change, and you can help. Breakthrough, a global human rights organisation, and Vodafone Foundation in collab with NGO Educate Girls have launched a campaign to fight the practice of early marriage for girls. All you need to do is upload a selfie on FB, Twitter, or breakthrough.tv, and hashtag it #selfies4school. For each selfie you upload, 10 girls will get to stay in school for an extra year—and keeping a girl in school will help change her fate. Visit breakthrough.tv for more details.
