Help Prevent Child Marriage in India

India has the largest number of child brides in the world. The vast majority of child brides never finish school, making it difficult to find gainful employment. Getting an education is one of the most effective ways to delay early marriage. A girl who receives seven or more years of schooling is more likely to delay marriage by four years.

Rippled Purpose feeds and educates girls living in slums outside of the resort town of Goa, India. For these young girls, getting an education is their only chance at a better life.

Buses Urgently Needed for Safety of Afghan Schoolgirls
For a girl living in Afghanistan, going to school can be dangerous. In early November 2008, two men sprayed acid into the faces of girls as they walked to school, causing serious injury. In an effort to prevent further attacks, the Safe Ride to School program was created to purchase a school bus and hire a driver. Five years later, the bus is breaking down and we need to purchase another to ensure the girls of Mirwais Mena School get to class safely.

This Gift That Gives More helps a young Afghan girl get a safe ride to school by contributing to the purchase of a new bus.
