Here’s an updated list of the guestspeakers for our next tweetchats! We’re all very excited for this excellent opportunity to learn more from our knowledgeable partners :) Everybody that we’ve partnered with to fund has had at least a three year consistent track record and a commitment to transparency and being able to pick out the children most in need to assist. I’m sure there’s plenty we can discover from them all

This week’s tweetchat (Wednesday7-8 pm EST) will feature a guest from Abaarso, an organization that has worked on improving educational opportunities for Somali students. More info will be posted tomorrow so stay tuned folks! :)

So in the last givchat, we brought up how different social media sites have different audiences. Someone brought up that Tumblr reaches younger people. Just to test that theory I wanna ask, how many of you guys following us are college students?

In the Indian state of Jharkhand, extreme poverty makes young, rural women especially vulnerable to human traffickers. Anti-poverty measures have not been very effective. For example, while the local government tried distributing bicycles to girls for them to travel to school, human traffickers target them on their routes. Even the women who have escaped slavery are still haunted and stalked by their traffickers. 

One woman, who had been kept as a slave by two married doctors and has since been rescued, is now enrolled in a state-run residential facility. Even though relatives of the doctors visited her parents to offer them “lots of money” to avoid prosecution, she has taken her case to court and is still fighting for justice.

“There is this new movement that is trying to teach people about the dangers of cutting their daughters. It is good for us to be able to discuss these things in school. We have been able to form our own opinions about the issue.”

Neshwa, 15, is one of millions of girls around the world to have been subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM). She hopes to become a doctor. Let girls be girls: http://uni.cf/GS14 #GirlSummit
