Rachel Wisthuff.jpg The Girl Up campaign was created by the United Nations Foundation to address the needs of adolescent girls in developing countries. By empowering youth in the U.S., Girl Up helps these underserved girls get educated, stay safe and accounted for and be positioned to be leaders. Currently, Girl Up supports programs in Liberia, Guatemala, Ethiopia and Malawi, with more potential locations on the way. Rachel Wisthuff, a Grassroots Associate with the campaign, has helped organize Girl Up’s partnership with Electronic Recyclers International to donate gently used electronics for young women in need.
