School Girls Unite

http://www.schoolgirlsunite.org

School Girls Unite began in a small café back in 2004 after a group of 12 year olds and young African women discussed the discrimination felt by girls in many developing countries. We aim to fight this discrimination, and advocate the powers of educating girls. We think education is the starting point to solving almost every other problem, including reducing diseases and ending poverty, and eventually increasing the number of women in leadership positions throughout the world.
School Girls Unite is comprised of chapters in the United States and Mali, Africa. Our incredible sister organization in Mali is called Les Filles Unies pour l’Education. We run a scholarship program in Mali, as well as provide leadership opportunities for youth in the US.

Lottie

http://www.lottie.com

Lottie™ is an alternative ‘pro-girl’ doll for children aged 3-8. Lottie is a positive take on childhood – she doesn’t wear make-up, jewellery or high heels and she can stand on her own two feet. She has soft, strokable hair and colourful clothes with high quality, quirky details. Unlike other fashion dolls, Lottie’s body is also properly ‘childlike,' and based upon the proportions of a nine year old girl. Lottie is all about letting children be themselves, not growing up too quickly, and presenting a healthy view on body image.

As well as a normal physique, Lammily wears regular, casual clothes - like denim shorts and sneakers, so children can make their dolls look just like the real women in their lives.
