Shes The First
She's the First fights for a world where every girl chooses her own future. We team up with local organizations across 11 countries to ensure girls are educated, respected, and heard.
The challenges holding girls back are complex, so we don’t pretend to have easy answers or magic wands. It’s not enough to get a girl into school if later she is pulled out for reasons beyond her control. We can teach girls to speak up, but we can’t forget to make sure that the world listens. This is why She’s the First takes a holistic approach to our work. We find, fund, and support solutions that not only educate and empower girls but also build up the communities where they are able to flourish.

The Giving Block only equips registered charities to accept crypto donations. Because crypto is classified as property by the IRS (and many other tax agencies globally), in addition to a write off, you do not have to pay capital gains tax on donated crypto. Consult a tax professional to confirm specifics. Or contact us to be put in touch with one.

Why donate Bitcoin?
An estimated 10 million girls won't return back to school, and rates of pregnancy, abuse, and child marriages will skyrocket as a result of COVID-19. As we saw in West Africa after the Ebola crisis, teenage pregnancy increased by 65% in Sierra Leone alone. And yet, COVID-19 response efforts are largely ignoring girls. Girls can’t wait any longer—the clock is ticking and their futures are at stake. Join us to learn more about the issue and take action through our She’s the First COVID-19 Response Fund.
