Palo Alto Girl Scout promotes human rights for girls to earn Gold Award

Ambassador Girl Scout, Sakshi Satpathy says she was motivated to take action and promote human rights for girls when she discovered that incidents of trafficking and child marriage exist in several parts of the United States. Through Project GREET (Girl Rights: Engage, Empower, Train), an initiative she created for her Girl Scout Gold Award, Sakshi has developed resources to increase awareness, help communities to better identify the red flags of human trafficking and child marriage, and provide opportunities for people to help individuals most at risk.

Sharing resources and tools to maintain rights for girls and women, Project GREET has educated nearly 3 million individuals about to the risks this vulnerable demographic face. 

Way to go for the Gold, Sakshi!
