A girl from Pagirinya refugee settlement stands in front of her primary school classroom. Pagirinya has been open since last July when the violence in #SouthSudan began, causing nearly 2,000 people to flee across the border each day, 65% of them under age 18. Thanks to @unrefugees there are three new school buildings being erected on the settlement to accommodate the steady influx of students. #WithRefugees

Girl Up Deputy Director @mrsannablue and @caradelevingne join in outdoor games with students from a Pagirinya refugee settlement primary school. Currently the school has 1,200 students, but needs resources to help it expand to 2,000 students next year. The settlement has only one secondary school, and many girls we talked to were concerned they won't be able to attend next year without funding for school fees that cover books, a uniform, and a mattress to sleep on.

Champion @caradelevingne plays with a young refugee girl on the school yard at Nyumanzi primary school. When the school started, there were no buildings and students held class outside under the trees. Four years later and now there are three buildings for grades 1-6. Despite its incredible progress the school still needs more @unrefugees funding for supplies, uniforms, and food so that more children can attend. #WithRefugees#nofilter Photo credit @edward_echwalu

I met a teacher today with a group of refugee girls, there's two doctors, two lawyers, two journalists, an engineer, who all shared with me and @girlupcampaign what they wanted to be when they grew up. It was so amazing to visit their Nyumanzi settlement primary and sit down and talk with each of them. @unrefugees#withrefugees

An ordinary moment on the school playground, girls giggling and chatting, takes on new meaning when you know that thousands of refugee girls nearby don't have a chance to enroll in school at all. No classes. No learning. No chance to be a child. Many #SouthSudan refugee girls in Uganda are pressured to remain at home to help with household duties, while others, as young as 13, are forced into child marriage by their families. Thanks to @unrefugees education system at BidiBidi refugee settlement, these two are safe, educated, and have hope for the future. #WithRefugees

Girls from the Bidibidi primary school from zones I and II welcome us and @unrefugees to their school with a special performance. Classes at the school are crowded with more than 100 students packed into tents that serve as classrooms. Both teachers and students spoke with us about the needs of their school, including textbooks, uniforms, and more buildings. All of the girls we spoke to hoped to go on to secondary school and university. #WithRefugees
Education does not finish when you leave school. This is 17year old Mary who is holding her two months old child after fleeing from South Sudan to Uganda. Something I have seen here and have been completely blown away by is the unparalleled strength of the mothers #withrefugees

A young refugee girl smiles near a well at a UNHCR transition center in northern Uganda. Her resilience is contagious. She arrived today at the center and awaits transport to a nearby settlement. She is one of more than 450,000 refugees who have fled from #SouthSudan into Uganda at the rate of over 2,000 per day since July 2016, the majority women and children. Once across the border @unrefugees gives them a hot meal and transports them to a settlement within a day. Learn more about our trip with Champion @caradelevingne and how you can help support our partnership with UNHCR in Uganda helping refugee girls go to school at girlup.org/carainuganda (link in bio). #WithRefugees
Girl Up Champion @caradelevingne meets with refugee girls waiting to be transported to a settlement at @unrefugees' Kuluba Transition Center. Fleeing violence in #SouthSudan, many of the girls had walked for seven days to reach Uganda and some were separated from family members along the way. Despite their harrowing journeys, the girls remained optimistic and were looking forward to starting school at their new settlements. Girl Up's support of UNHCR's programming for refugee girls' education has helped over 4,414 refugee girls in Uganda go to school. #WithRefugees

The refugee crisis may seem far away, but for girls like Diana, it's close to home. Diana's sister was forced into child marriage at 17, so her dowry could pay for the family's medical bills. Thanks to support from @unrefugees, Diana has been able to attend school, but her future remains uncertain. Help give girls like Diana a brighter future: girlup.org/donate [Link in bio].
Lillian, 13, and her family were forced to flee their home in Rwanda when she was just 10 years old. She was able to re-enroll in school thanks to supplies from UNHCR, and now she dreams of becoming a doctor. Your donation of $25 will give a girl like Lillian the uniform, textbooks, and supplies to go to school for a year through UNHCR's programmatic investments in Uganda.

Hello fellow feminists! My name is Maria, I am a Girl Up Teen Advisor from Appleton WI. In this photo, I am posing with my cover article in my hometown's "Post-Crescent" newspaper that talks about my work with Girl Up. I have a major interest in International Diplomacy and believe that everyone deserves to be educated, especially refugees. How would anyone be able to compete on an international stage, if we are not all educated? I come from a family where education is a must. I could have easily been born somewhere else in the globe, where not all girls have access to education. I must fight for those who can not fight for themselves, and we have a long way to go. Which is why I'm supporting Girl Up's Give Her A Future initiative on #GivingTuesday to raise money for refugee girls in Uganda to go to school. In December, my club meeting will have a party, and spare change will be collected, to fundraise. Join me and donate at girlup.org/donate today!
Hey! My name is Annabelle and I'm a current Girl Up Teen Advisor from Chicago! Last October, members of Whitney Young Girl Up attended the Women and Global Development Forum hosted by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, where we discussed the Sustainable Development Goals, including universal access to education. I am SO excited to support refugee girls' education this year for #GivingTuesday because every girl deserves the right to realize their potential. girlup.org/donate
Hi! My name is Sophia, and I am a Teen Advisor from Los Angeles, California. As the Director of Activities for the Los Angleles Girl Up Coalition, I organized the annual Southern California Girl Up Leadership Summit this year. At the summit, I got to meet with Shelmina Abji (left, a member of the Girl Up Advisory Council and the former vice president of IBM), and my head of school, Dr. Priscilla G. Sands (right). Over 200 people attended the summit and we were able to raise $3,000 for Girl Up's efforts around the world. I strongly encourage you all to continue this spirit of fundraising by creating fundraisers of your own or simply donating to Girl Up on #GivingTuesday at girlup.org/donate. Today for #GivingTuesday I'm organizing a school-wide paid free dress day where students can wear free dress to school with a suggested donation of $5, all of which will go to Girl Up in support of education for refugee girls in Uganda.
Hello fellow girls in action! I'm Katrina, a current Girl Up Teen Advisor from Massachusetts. This photo shows girls from the AB Girl Up Club at the Boston Coalition Global 5K group last March. We advocated in our school for girls in Rajasthan, India. This Club as a whole has such a passion for Girl Up, and we became even stronger through this event. We walked the track and were encouraging each other the whole way through, and it was nice to know we had everyone's support. Just like we supported each other that day, I'm proud to join Girl Up today in support of refugee girls' education in Uganda for #GivingTuesday girlup.org/donate
Hi, I'm Sarra, a current Girl Up Teen Advisor. I'm originally from Jordan, but now live in England. Yes, I did put a filter on Elizabeth Warren, and yes I nearly cried with happiness. I met Senator Warren (@elizabethwarrenma) on Girl Up's Capitol Hill day at their Leadership Summit last summer. My group talked with her about our H.R.5735 bill to support refugee girls' education, and just like that day, today for #GivingTuesday I'm still fighting for refugee girls to have a chance to go to school. A donation of just $25 helps a refugee girl in Uganda go to school for a year: girlup.org/donate

As our country remains divided over the recent election results, I'm hoping there's one thing the majority of us can agree on: women deserve equal pay. This goes beyond sport -- women make on average only 77% of what men make while performing the same job. Please join me in this movement with my latest apparel from @represent by purchasing a tee, tank or sweatshirt while supporting @girlupcampaign (link in bio)

"While we are strong, together we are stronger. And together, our voices will change the world. You see a girl. We see the future." Members of a Girl Up club in Tanzania held up copies of the Girlafesto as they met with UN Foundation President and CEO Kathy Calvin last week to talk about their hopes for the future and the importance of empowering girls everywhere.
