This grant will also fund the Week of Action, a digital summit for She’s the First campus chapter leaders in the U.S. created to improve their advocacy efforts via educational tools, programming and mentorship.

The initial USD$25k seed grant made via The Pretty Powerful Fund helped develop the Global Girls’Bill of Rights digital tool kit, an online hub housing the first-ever Global Girls’ Bill of Rights, which outlines the 10 essential rights girls should be entitled to globally such as free and quality education, equality, protection, and more. The digital tool kit allows girls from all over the world to access the Bill and take action in their local communities. The Pretty Powerful Fund will continue to support She’s the First’s educational and developmental initiatives by providing strategic donations, supporting ongoing programming, and raising awareness for these initiatives.
