4 Self­less Self­ies Make All The Dif­fer­ence

Cosmopolitan (India) - - HOT LIST -

#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.
