Hike for Her is a fun, virtual, fundraising challenge in celebration of International Day of the Girl. The challenge is to hike 100 kilometres in October to raise vital funds for girls’ education in West Africa.
School closures throughout the pandemic have resulted in millions of girls being forced out of education. Many will never return.
When girls are out of school, they are at much higher risk of child marriage and teenage pregnancy. In fact in the average time, it takes for you or I to walk 100km, 36,000 girls under 18 would be forced into marriage.
Girls’ education is so, so important to break the cycle of poverty.
We are asking YOU to Hike for Her to transform a girl’s life through education.
