Facebook’s mission to bring the world closer together and build communities is complemented by Girl Effect’s understanding of vulnerable girls and expertise in creating content for them. By providing access to skills, ideas, and knowledge – and crucially – role models and peers across multiple geographies, new communities are enabled and formed.
Facebook supports Girl Effect to reach girls around the world with the content and information they need to make choices and changes in their lives - especially in places where access to the internet can be difficult.
Facebook's Free Basics platform provides people with access to useful services on their mobile phones. The websites on the platform are available for free, without data charges, enabling more people to experience the benefits of connectivity, thus improving lives. Girl Effect has partnered with Free Basics through our Springster brand, which became a content provider on the platform. The entertaining, educational and empowering content is now available in 15 countries and eight languages - reaching 2 million girls.
