Let your year-end
be about hope!

Monica was just 14, and still in Class 9
when she was forced to drop out of school.

A year later, she was married. Her dreams –
of being a teacher, or a doctor even –
were dust. This is a story that millions of girls
share simply because they’re… girls.

Existing gender biases force many girls to give up on their dreams.
Help us change this. Make this festive season a season of hope.

Make a promise today.
To make violence and discrimination against women and girls unacceptable.

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 this year-end by making a difference in the lives of many girls.

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