The nonprofit organization recently launched its third year of the fundraising campaign, which aims to help girls reach their potential and achieve their dreams. #GirlsCan was originally introduced in 2019 as 1000 Girls and successfully supported thousands of Filipino girls throughout the years.
The global movement intends to empower young girls and give them opportunities through the organization’s Child Sponsorship program.
It also drum beats the celebration of International Day of the Girl on October 11.
“A lot of Filipino girls are struggling right now, and they don’t deserve this. They must look forward to a better future, not a dark and uncertain one. Education is a concrete way to empower them to be able to take more control over their own lives,” shared World Vision ambassador Gretchen Ho.
“I’m encouraging everyone to please support World Vision’s #GirlsCan campaign and let us help the girls achieve their dreams despite being hurdled by the challenges of the pandemic,” she added.
To bring more awareness to this good cause, World Vision tapped Podcast Network Asia as one of its media partners. The network houses strong women podcasters who eagerly agreed to the partnership, as well as podcasters who create parenting content in their shows.
The Eve’s Drop and I Homeschool will interview former sponsored girls in its upcoming episodes. Meanwhile, other PNA podcasters also shared their support through mid-rolls in its recent episodes. Some of which are It’s An Adult Thing, Anything Goes with the Bonis, You Can Do This!, Langga Speaks and more.
