Rachael and Theo have founded an organization that is getting at the very foundations of poverty, oppression and bad health. One at a time, they are finding culturally-appropriate ways to save young girls from female "circumcision" and forced early marriages. Studies -- and real lives -- show that when women have education, control over their own money, and access to health care, whole families and communities are lifted out of the cycle of rapid-fire babies, ill health and high mortality, malnutrition and poverty. Voices of Hope has some wonderful success stories in young women who have graduated from their programs, gone on to college, gotten successful careers underway, and then *returned to their own people to help make a difference for more girls.* Voices of Hope may be a tiny organization, but the difference they are building is huge because it grows on its own success. They can currently accept only about 4 - 5% of the girls who apply for their safe houses and bording schools, so ever dollar really counts! Please help them out!
