Girl Up! New Club at MHS.

Spurned from interest and advocacy from our students, Ms. DeWan has agreed to be the advisor of a new club at MHS; Girl Up.

More than 600 million smart, talented girls are living in developing countries, full of dreams. However, they are often not able to reach their full potential. They are often unable to do things that seem simple to us, such as to go to school, or see a doctor. Many girls face these struggles, which has consequences that include girls marrying at very young ages, and early motherhood (which also causes health risks). GirlUp is an organization that unites girls to change the world. Messalonskee’s chapter of GirlUp will work to raise awareness and fundraise for these issues, and stress the importance of education both here in the United States, and in other countries.
