It's hard to be an orphaned child.
But orphaned girls face unique challenges.
Without family support or marketable skills, orphaned girls face a grim future of low wage jobs and extreme poverty.
Statistically, without support, orphaned girls are 10x more likely to become sex workers or to be sexually assaulted.
Poverty leads to health risks for orphaned girls and a suicide rate 500x higher than the general population.
Boys and Girls are not equal.
At Teach Her we love boys too, but the truth is: orphaned girls face a much more uncertain future without support. It's a grim story that can have a bright future if we work together.
