Help Femtastic! and GirlUp Improve the Conditions of Teen Girls in Developing Nations
During the Month of February, Femtastic! will be hosting a fair to raise money for the GirlUp campaign. This is an exciting United Nations Campaign that “Addresses the needs of some of the world’s hardest-to-reach adolescent girls by channeling the energy and compassion of American girls as a positive force for change.” The money that we raise will go to funds for programs of the UN which work to provide girls in Ethiopia, Guatemala, and other countries with the ability to go to school, see a doctor, have access to clean water, and stay safe from sexual violence.
The fair will feature informative posters on the issues of each country the GirlUp campaign is involved with, and keynote speakers who are experts on issues such as sexual violence and healthcare in developing countries. We also want to highlight the talents and achievements of local teens by showcasing their artwork, having a poetry reading, or live music. If you want to contribute art, poetry, or music to this event, or have some other talent that you think could be showcased, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
