The Nike Foundation invests exclusively in adolescent girls as the most powerful force for change and poverty alleviation in the developing world. We’ve seen it with our own eyes through the investments we’ve made over the past seven years: Improve a girl’s life and many more lives benefit: her brothers, sisters, parents and beyond. As an educated mother, an active citizen and an ambitious entrepreneur, or a prepared employee, she can break the cycle of poverty. This is the Girl Effect.
