Today, Jasmine Lamb launched a campaign on her blog, allislistening.com, to raise over $5,000 for BRAC’s adolescent girls program in Bangladesh by Thanksgiving. Jasmine heard about The Girl Effect and BRAC’s programs from a friend and connected with the powerful message of investing in young girls. BRAC’s Social and Financial Empowerment of Adolescents project (SOFEA) is an initiative aimed at providing girls with financial and social support to enable them to empower themselves. The program gives girls a safe space to socialize while providing them with life skills training, livelihood training, financial literacy training, and small loans to start income-generating activities.

In partnership with The Girl Effect, SOFEA aims to empower girls to make more informed decisions about issues that affect their lives. By educating them, the girls will lead healthier lives and become informed mothers, bringing up healthy families in the future and thereby breaking the cycle of poverty.
Jasmine writes on her blog, “Today I have a new dream. My dream is to get a girl a loan so she can buy a cow. I want your help in fulfilling my dream, her dream, your dream, our dreams.”
Great job, Jasmine, and keep up the good work!
