Goal 1Change MindsBig change starts small. The first step toward success is simple: pass it on. We know that educating girls will change the world. The more people who share that message - through social networks, at the dinner table, in boardrooms, in rural villages - the more support we build. By spreading the word, 10x10 is changing minds.
Goal 2Changing Lives
10x10 partners with the pros in the field - organizations with proven track records of educating girls. By telling stories of their work and directing donations to their programs that help girls get into and stay in school, 10x10 is changing lives.
Goal 3Changing Policy
10x10 partners with policy leaders to influence governments and global institutions. Laws that ensure every girl has an equal opportunity to reach her full potential must be enacted - and enforced. By keeping up the pressure, 10x10 can help change policy.
