An excerpt but go read the entire posting:
We engage with the UN Interagency Task Force on Adolescent Girls to achieve programmatic goals in Malawi, Ethiopia, Guatemala and Liberia – with a plan to expand to 20 countries. To achieve the funding and constituency base to support the country programs – we have created Girl Up. Girl Up gives American girls the opportunity to channel their energy and compassion to raise awareness and funds for programs of the United Nations that help some of the world’s hardest-to-reach adolescent girls. Through Girl Up’s support, girls have the opportunity to become educated, healthy, safe, counted and positioned to be the next generation of leaders. Campaign supporters are encouraged to give a “High Five” to girls in developing countries by donating $5 or more to provide girls with such basic needs as access to school supplies, clean water, life-saving health services, safety from violence and more. To give a high five and learn more, join us at GirlUp.org. The Director will lead and manage Girl Up, and will be accountable to achieving its goals and objectives, specifically building a mass constituency (over 200,000 people) engaged in the issue of elevating the rights and needs of adolescent girls living in the developing world and raising funds ($5 million a year) to re-shape their lives. The Director will be part of a dynamic team at the UN Foundation that includes professionals with programmatic, communications, marketing, and fundraising expertise. S/he will be responsible for day-to-day management of the campaign and will sit on the senior staff. [emphasis mine]
So I’m 48, live in Ohio, have three kids under 18 and am a sitting elected official. I can dream, can’t I?
