Join me Monday, October 24th at 6 p.m. PDT. My guest will be Chantelle Baxter, the co-founder of One Girl, a non-profit that helps empower girls and women in Sierra Leone. 
About One Girl: "We focus on empowering women and girls so that they can create and lead change in their communities. We believe that education and economic empowerment are vital when it comes to tackling the issues that women and girls face in Sierra Leone. We currently have two projects we’re working on, Back to School Scholarships and LaunchPad. 
Our Back to School scholarships provide a girl with everything she needs to attend school. Her school fees will be paid in full, plus she’ll receive a school uniform, school books and stationary. We also include a medical contingency in case she gets sick! All this is provided for just $20 a month. LaunchPad: A majority of women in Sierra Leone don’t have a hygienic way of managing their period. LaunchPad is a social enterprise that sells low cost, eco-friendly sanitary pads to women and girls there. Educating a girl has a multiplier effect. Invest in a girl, and she’ll do the rest. Our mission: We want to provide 600 education scholarships to girls in Sierra Leone by 2014. We’re also aiming to train 55 LaunchPad Champions to sell affordable eco-friendly sanitary pads.”
