     For some girls, getting an education is something that does not come easy to them. They must overcome endless barriers and challenges just to achieve a privilege we all take for granted. 
     Eulalia is a little girl who lives in Peru with her family on the weekends. Where she lives, there has never been a school built. So, in order to obtain an education, she leaves her family during the week and travels to a boarding school. Eulalia is only one of millions of girls who fight to get educated. 
     CARE is an organization that allows you to invest in a girl's future. A donation as small as $10 can make a tremendous difference in a small life. CARE helps girls stay in school, children who are out of school are sentenced to a life of poverty and poor health. Each year of education a woman completes makes a difference. A woman makes 10-20% more for every year of school completed - Children of educated mothers are 2x as likely to go to school. These same children are more likely to have a better outcome as well. Children born to literate moms are 50% more likely to survive past the age of 5. CARE knows the statistics and realizes that keeping the world's girls educated is beneficial for the future. You can help also by making a donation. Two uniforms are only $38 for these children, that is less than a night's dinner out! Make a difference in a child's life! Go here to donate.
