Help keep girls safe

After the death of Halimoon’s father, her mother Rina struggled to make ends meet. Desperate to feed her children, Rina took a job outside the home – leaving Halimoon and her little brother to fend for themselves.  

While her mum’s at work, Halimoon is responsible for everything from fetching water to cleaning the house and caring for her younger brother. To make a little money, the children pick litter and sell biscuits and crisps to passers-by.  

Halimoon longs to go to school. But with her mum’s earnings barely covering the cost of feeding the family, education remains a distant hope.   

Right now, millions of girls like Halimoon are living in terror of what tomorrow will bring. Your monthly gift could help change the lives of women and girls living in fear.
