“Experience the sensation of buying a girl… her life back”. That’s the baiting, provocative but so very clever intro of the Girl Store website, effective at demonstrating how a girl child in India can be “bought back” from the perils of being sold for marriage, sex slavery, labor slavery or terrorism.

The Girl Store, run by Nanhi Kali, an Indian national girl child sponsorship program, provides girls with academic support to get them in school and to stop the cycle where girls from impoverished families are often sold into marriage or sex slavery.

In the store, one is able to sponsor the supplies that allow an underprivileged girl in India to go to school and get an education.  I bought Padma, age 7, her set of books and was thrilled to see the site immediately updated with an “off to school” message on her photo.  This tiny gesture was such a feel-good.

You too can make a difference in a girl’s life right now by either buying school supplies or by making a $65 donation which sponsors a girl for a full year of school. Completely worth it.
