There are more than 130 million girls globally who are denied an education. We know that this unfortunate reality can have a significant impact on their lives, and the lives of their future children. To curb this trend, world leaders must take urgent action to get these girls in school and keep them there. That’s why we launched #GirlsCount — a movement of activists around the world who are joining together to sound the alarm on the girls’ education crisis, by counting each and every one of them — all the way from 1 to 130 million.
And the response has been awe-inspiring.
Thousands of mothers, daughters, sons & fathers — and everyone from Malala Yousafzai to the Count himself — have joined this movement. We’re so inspired by this global rallying cry that we decided to launch a competition to find the most creative #GirlsCount videos from all over. So now is the time to grab your friends and family — and even your pets, if you want! — and come up with your best and brightest ideas to show world leaders that every girl counts.
From now until August 2, each week we’ll pick one video to win our special prize package — including a ONE t-shirt, ONE beaded bracelet, ONE band, and exclusive Moleskine notebook. Winning videos will also be featured on ONE’s Facebook page to help spread the word!
