United Nations Foundation - Inaugural Girl Up ‘Unite for Girls’ Tour
The United Nations’ 2010 nationwide Girl Up tour aimed to empower girls in the U.S. to raise awareness and funds for the hardest-to-reach girls in developing countries. Showcasing interactive educational activities at schools and girls clubs across the U.S., the tour was highlighted by a signature component, the Girl Up Pep Rally, which taught U.S. students the hardships of girls in Ethiopia, Guatemala, Liberia and Malawi. Armed with this information, the students then learned how they could take real action to help them. Leveraging the Twitter presence of individual Girl Up advocates like Queen Rania, Ivanka Trump and Victoria Justice, the foundation reaped maximum digital exposure for the tour. Over five months, more than 10,700 people took part in the initiative.
