The Mirwais Mena School for Girls serves more than five hundred Afghan girls, who travel several miles from surrounding villages to get to class. Often they are harassed verbally or physically for daring to attend school. A school bus provides them with safe passage to and from class, and real protection from acid attacks or worse. Your click today will make sure that 100 girls can ride safely to school.

In 2008, groups of students and teachers walking to the Mirwais Mena School for Girls were attacked by men squirting acid out of water bottles. The next day, the classrooms stood empty as frightened parents kept their children home. One girl, Shamsia Husseini, suffered such severe burns on her eyelids and cheeks that she was in the hospital for weeks.

When readers of the New York Times learned of the attack, which was condemned internationally for its cowardly nature, they acted. They bought the school a bus so the girls could ride in safety. Shamsia Husseini not only returned to school but also went on to receive her teaching certificate. Now, she stands before a classroom of girls, committed to giving them the education that she wanted so desperately that she was willing to risk her life to continue.

The Greater Good main mission changes daily. If you are interested in the literacy for the girls, you may need to link directly to that school for the Safety of a Bus Ride here:

You can click through the list everyday much like the Care2's "Click to Donate".
It is painless and does not require but 1 minute of your time. lol. Start with Greater Good and click straight across and through each one.


Breast Cancer

The article is headlined 'send little girls..' Why is there always the word 'little' preceding the word 'girls.' We never see 'little' boys. Gender discrimination??
