what is hope by twelve?
hope by twelve is a non-profit organization set out to empower adolescent girls in situations of poverty. When girls are given the chance to invest in their community, a ripple effect happens that will travel throughout that community and from one generation to the next. We exist to help girls unlock and see their full potential to be the change in the world.
Why the name?
When a girl who lives in poverty turns twelve her life is in the hands of others. We HOPE to catch that girl BY the age of TWELVE and give her a healthy future.
The unexpected solution to changing the world is: a girl.
50 million 12 year old girls live in poverty. 600 million girls live in the developing world. We will find them, one by one and be the solution.
Girls helping girls!
How will we help these girls? Through the ideas, creativity and help of GIRLS. Our very own girlpods are the backbone of hope by twelve. Learn all about them here.
