Help Educate
Girls

Persuasive Discourse supports education and would like to invite the reader to find a cause that speaks to them and contribute towards it. For instance, there are many organisations that work in the field of youth or girls' education. Following is an example of an organisation that you might like to consider supporting in the near future.   

She's the First is a non profit organization that works towards creating a world where every girl is educated, respected, and heard. The organization was founded in 2009 by Christen Brandt and Tammy Tibbetts and is currently present in eleven countries. Its philosophy is to work together with local and community-based organizations to make a positive impact in girls' lives.
