Over the years Dot Girl Products has looked for ways to support girl empowerment organizations. We have donated to the Central Asia Institute, an organization that promotes peace through education by establishing more than 171 schools, most of them for girls, in remote regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan. We have also made donations to the Mukilteo School District where we are located and promoted the Day of the Girl events.
We’ve done this to help raise awareness amongst our readers of the good works being done by these organizations. When we were contacted to share the below infographic we just knew it was one more way to get the word out and recommend ways to help.
‘The Kids Aren’t All Right’ infographic details the countries in the world that are the worst for kids, our most vulnerable population. Information is tabulated for everything from percent of child laborers to rates of teen suicides.
How can you help? We’ve mentioned before a great book that points you in the proper direction. Half The Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicolas D. Kristof (a New York Time columnist) and Sheryl WuDunn. While the book focuses on the plights facing young girls, many of the organizations listed in the book help all children. We encourage you to visit the Half the Sky website to find out more.
