The Girl Effect, n.
The powerful social and economic change brought about when girls have the opportunity to participate in their society.

The Girl Effect is about Girls. And boys. And moms and dads and villages and towns and countries. It’s run through CARE, a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty who place special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty. Women are at the heart of CARE’s community-based efforts to improve basic education, prevent the spread of HIV, increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives.
