Lammily is the first fashion doll made according to real female body proportions. The idea is to help children - girls and boys alike - develop a positive and realistic body image from an early age. 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.

The beneficiaries of our program are all women. This is due to their unique role as mothers and heads of households.

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.
