Approximately twenty-seven million girls are “missing” throughout countries such as Asia, India, Pakistan and Cambodia.
Profound poverty leads to a lack of education and a lack of education results in poverty. The despair here is so great that trafficking of young girls is one of the most serious human rights violations facing Cambodia.1 Human trafficking is a $150 billion per year business.

Offering a safe and cost free learning environment, in rural villages close to home can break the cycle, taking students from poverty to opportunity. We are convinced that education is the most effective way to fight poverty, modern day slavery and fertility. Poverty is complex, The Giving "Three" Foundation supports education paired with other effective interventions.
The Giving "Three" Foundation 501(c)3 supports initiatives working to help take children from oppression to opportunity, every person is entitled to basic human rights, growing up safe, healthy, educated and fed are among them!
The Giving "Three" Foundation's mission is to help educate children around the world taking them from oppression to Opportunity. To fund this mission proceeds from Gracie Greene sales are donated to The Giving "Three" Foundation which support the Zahn School, the needs of the students and the children cared for in Children in Families, CIF, as they overcome traumas and prepare to find a forever home.
Our business goal is to create a self sustaining income for our mission instead of constantly relying on fundraisers.
We believe that educating and empowering children will help them stand up to injustices. People who complain that education is too expensive should calculate the expense of not educating children and the negative impact on the GNP.2
