  • Interview with Ruchira Gupta (Apne Aap Founder)

    [img]http://givology.org/images/user/1842_3236767046174309204.jpg[/img] Givology is ecstatic to partner with Apne Aap Women World Wide, a grassroots organization that targets to end sex trafficking. Givology fully supports Apne Aap’s mission and visions. The courageous Ruchira Gutpa, founder of Apne Aap, began as a journalist and traveled to Nepal. When she was in Nepal and she came across loads of villages that did not have young women. After being perplexed, she ask some local men that were gambling and playing cards, “where are the girls?” Some of the men smiled sheepishly and responded “don’t you know they are in Bombay?” She began to explore what was going on; Ruchira stated “to my horror I found that the sex trade still exist.” It starts with poor farmers that lack education. An agent from this sex industry would pay the parents or families a low price to buy their daughter, similar to $50. The agents tell the fathers that they can offer their daughters a job i...
  • International Day of the Girl Child

    [img]/images/user/1842_3257248989082755952.jpg[/img] “October 11 is not just a day; it’s a movement. A worldwide revolution.” October 11 is the International Day of the Girl Child, a day honored by the UN since 2012 in order to unite gender equality activists and raise awareness for girls suffering from gender discrimination. Girls are oppressed by domestic violence and forced to marry at a young age, kept from getting an education, sexualized and forced to meet high beauty standards set by the media, and treated unequally in the work place, but these issues are finally being paid attention to on an international level. Gender inequality is reaching the international agenda as girls are reaching out to share their story and make their voice heard. This female revolution is sparking activist movements throughout the world. The Rally Project was created to organize gender equality rallies in 11 large cities and interactively increase awareness through poetry, music, dancing, and...
  • Back to School with the Binghamton University Chapter

    [img]/images/user/1842_12662415169915435364.jpg[/img] Binghamton University's chapter president, Alyssa Famolari, sat down with us to tell us the big plans the chapter has for this year: [b]How did you learn about Givology?[/b] I learned about Givology when I joined Binghamton University's club about 2 years ago. [b]What about Givology's mission inspired you to start a chapter?[/b] Our club was not always just a Givology chapter. Before a year ago, we were only partially affiliated with this organization, but as we continued to work with Givology, our club just fell more in love with the cause. Finally, we have shifted our mission to being 100% dedicated to Givology. The cause is such an inspiring and helpful one, that it'd be hard not to want to start one. Our members only want to help these children get an education and Givology is definitely the way to go! [b]Tell us about your goals for this school year.[/b] Our goals for this year to put on continuous fundraiser...
