The purpose of this trip is multi-faceted. The Million Girl Army is a developing non-profit that aims to empower girls all around the world. In a nutshell, the organization’s goal is to educate and inspire one million middle school and high school girls in the developed world to donate $10 a year to help girls their age in developing countries. We are traveling to Asia in January to collect stories from young girls about the challenges they face, to meet with groups who are going great work with young girls, and to inspire the team to dream much grander than they have before about how we can affect change from our corner of the world. This blog is our chance to communicate with those back home who have financially or otherwise supported our trip.
