Are you inspired to do something special this holiday season? We’ve got an idea for you.

The world is facing a massive refugee crisis, and yet refugees in Uganda aren’t getting the global attention they deserve. In Uganda, many refugee girls have never had a first day of school. That’s unacceptable. Oftentimes, a uniform and textbooks are all it takes to get a girl into the classroom.

This holiday season, donations to Girl Up can help impact the lives of up to 4,990 refugee girls, helping them enroll in school for the first time through UNHCR’s programmatic investments in Uganda. You—yes, YOU!—can plan a big role in helping us reach that goal. Sign up today to be a fundraiser for our Give Her a Future initiative, asking your family and friends to give a donation to Girl Up for the holidays.GirlUp Refugee Education 2016

You’ll be able to create your own personal fundraising page to help enroll an entire classroom of refugee girls in school. That’s 40 girls who will have the chance to go to school because of your generosity. So how can you fundraise? Instead of asking for presents this holiday season, ask friends and family to give the gift of education. Or plan a local fundraiser, like a hike, to help refugees. Plus, we’ll be there every step of the way with tips and resources to help you reach your fundraising goal.

We need you if we’re going to reach our goal of educating 4,990 refugee girls. Are you ready to be a force for good?
