Who We Are

Girls Read for Girls is a girls-run read-a-thon fundraiser that aims to raise awareness about gender equity issues, generate funds in support of efforts to empower girls through education, and inspire young people to make changes in their community. 

We are inspired by Malala Yousafzai and want to show our support for her and all the people who show tremendous courage in the fight for girls’ education. That’s why we organized the Girls Read for Girls read-a-thon. We hope you’ll join us.
