Celebrating International Day of the Girl with She’s The First
Today we stand (and cheer!) with girls everywhere and celebrate the barriers they are breaking and boundaries they are crossing.

Our women-led team believes that a girl with an education is unstoppable. As our company grows, so does our vision to sponsor as many girls as possible through this special partnership with She’s the First. Check out She’s the First 2018 annual report to learn more about its important work.
There sure are a lot of uncertainties today, but one thing we know for sure is that
girls everywhere deserve to be: EDUCATED, RESPECTED AND HEARD.
Did you know that right now there are 130 million girls out of school?
Did you know that 23 million girls become pregnant each year?
Did you know that globally, girls spend 40% more time on chores than boys?

While these statistics are unthinkable, we share the same belief with our partners at She’s The First that it takes local solutions to solve global problems and by sharing knowledge, power and information with other grassroots organizations, we can amplify girls’ voices to challenge gender bias and policies that can limit their potential.

We know how fortunate we’ve all been to have access to education and it is this gratitude that
makes supporting She’s the First such a fitting partnership and continuously inspires us to help cultivate the next generations of #VEERAHwarriors. As part of our 1-10-100 Battle Plan, every 100 customer feedback surveys VEERAH receives, VEERAH sponsors a one-year scholarship for a
She’s The First scholar.
Why? Because empowered women empower other women. It’s that simple.
