She's the First
She’s the First is a community:
They are advocates and changemakers; ambitious students and dedicated teachers; inspiring artists and seasoned policymakers; resilient mothers and feminist fathers; community organizers and business leaders. They come from many countries and backgrounds, but their differences are not nearly as important as what they share—a belief that every girl, no matter where she is born, deserves to be educated, respected, and heard.
In everything they do, they put girls' voices at the center of conversations that affect their lives and support communities to drive their own transformation.
They Put Girls First
Their vision is a world where every girl chooses her own future.
Because in too many places around the world, girls are treated as second to the boys.
They are denied an education, told who and when to marry, and blocked from leadership. Educated and respected girls are the exception, not the norm.
The challenges holding girls back are complex, so they don’t pretend to have easy answers or magic wands. It’s not enough to get a girl into school if later she is pulled out for reasons beyond her control. They can teach girls to speak up, but they can’t forget to make sure that the world listens.
This is why She’s the First takes a holistic approach to their work.
They find, fund, and support solutions that not only educate and empower girls but also build up the communities where they are able to flourish.
