Hope, happiness and
celebrations.

What if you could share this birthday joy with many others?

Millions of girls in India are denied
the right to an education,
to a childhood, to their dreams,
simply because they’re girls.

Today, you have an opportunity to
spread your birthday cheer by
making a difference in their lives.

Existing gender biases force many girls to give up on their dreams.
Make your birthday the day you helped us change this.

At Breakthrough, Team Change is a community of changemakers committed to this goal.
When you donate to Breakthrough and become a member of Team change this is what you set into motion:

Through our programmes, a girl becomes aware of her rights and starts negotiating with her family to be kept in school.
The family is made aware of the importance of girls’ education and the harms of early marriage.
Her voice is respected and she is allowed to continue her education. Do you see?

With just this choice you’ve made to be part of Team Change, you’ve made this change possible.

Become a changemaker on your special day by making a difference in the lives of many girls.

All donations to Breakthrough are eligible for 50% tax exemption.
