Girls Opportunity Alliance
The Girls Opportunity Alliance, a program of the Obama Foundation, seeks to empower adolescent girls around the world through education, allowing them to achieve their full potential and transform their families, communities, and countries. We engage people around the world to take action to help adolescent girls and the grassroots leaders working to educate them. The Girls Opportunity Alliance aims to lift up the work being done around the world to empower adolescent girls through education by: Inspiring, empowering, and connecting grassroots leaders The Foundation wants to ensure that those on the front lines are supported with effective strategies to enhance and scale their work. We created an online network to connect leaders to one another so they can share best practices, resources, encouragement, and ideas. Driving specific commitments through GoFundMe These grassroots leaders need more than visibility and connections to one another—they need financial support. To close this gap, the Foundation worked with GoFundMe to launch the Girls Opportunity Alliance Fund, a fund that will directly support grassroots leaders working on girls education. Donations to the fund may be general or designated by donors for specific projects listed on the Girls Opportunity Alliance GoFundMe page. Inspiring and challenging young people in the developed world to join us We want young people in the United States and around the world to learn about this issue and get involved. From encouraging young people to share a presentation on this issue at school to collaborating with girl group organizations who have expanded their programming to include work on adolescent girls education, the Foundation is offering resources to help young people turn their passion about this issue into action.
Good Sports’ mission is to give all kids the lifelong benefits of sport and physical activity by providing equipment, apparel and footwear to those most in need. Good Sports recognized that there are still too many hurdles for girls and young women when it comes to opportunity to play, so they launched the She Who Plays initiative designed to support new and equitable access to sports for girls nationwide. In continuation of their partnership with Good Sports, Under Armour will support this initiative through investments in providing the tools and equipment that girls need to succeed.
