Speak Up works with girls from impoverished families in Bangladesh who are at risk of child marriage or child trafficking. Bangladesh has the highest rate of child marriage for girls under age 15 in the world. Speak Up helps these girls to stay in school all the way through college graduation, empowering them to have greater agency over their own lives and a path out of poverty.
Today, Speak Up’s Girls Education Program (GEP) is helping more than 1,500 girls and young women stay in school through college or other higher education, greatly impacting their future. GEP girls and young women are inspiring examples to their families and communities of what women can accomplish when they have the opportunity to stay in school and chase their dreams.
Please note, Speak Up for the Poor is not a religious organization. Speak Up defends, educates, and empowers vulnerable girls regardless of their religious or cultural background.
