It is a curious thing, to feel so glad that someone else is in the world, to feel that it is almost a privilege to love them.

According to GirlUp, more than 40% of Liberian girls ages 10-14 have never gone to school. Unfortunately, young girls fall victim to the most frequently reported crime in Liberia, rape. Before the war in 1989, Liberia had over 2,400 schools. After 2003, Liberia only had about 480 remaining.An extra year of primary school boosts girls’ eventual wages by 10 to 20 percent. An extra year of secondary school: 15 to 25 percent. When women and girls earn income, they reinvest 90 percent of it into their families, as compared to only 30 to 40 percent for a man.

The More Than Me Academy is the first tuition-free, all girls school in Liberia. Not only do they give these girls an education, but they also provide them with two hearty meals a day, access to healthcare, access to a computer lab and library, and a robust afterschool program, ensuring the girls are off the street for the entire day from 7am to 5pm. 

You can imagine how excited we are to have More Than Me’s founder/CEO, Katie Meyler as our guest for tomorrow’s givchat! Follow givology and @MoreThanMeORG on twitter as well as the #givchat hashtag WEDNESDAY July 30 (tomorrow!) at 7 PM EST to join in on the dialogue and ask questions about her organization and the causes they address! :)

Ahmet & Murat Atalay - Eşin Yok Senin

Sözleri:
Aşk acısın canan meyler dinlemez
El kapısı hayın canar eylemez

Gül kokunu yarim kimse veremez
Bal bahçeye girdim eşin yok senin

Özledim yarim seni özledim
Vurdun şu sineme deli eyledin

Bu nasıl aşk idir sana neyledim
Seni bulamadım eşin yok senin

Özledim yarim seni özledim
Vurdun şu sineme deli eyledin

Gül kokulu yarim sana neyledim
Seni bulamadım eşin yok senin

Bir gidişin baharımı kış etti
Sevda ateşimi kül etti geçti

Gençligimi verdim yıllarım gitti
Agardı saçlarım bir ömür bitti

Gül kokunu yarim kimse veremez
Bal bahçeye girdim eşin yok senin

Özledim yarim seni özledim
Vurdun şu sineme deli eyledin

Bu nasıl aşk idir sana neyledim
Seni bulamadım eşin yok senin

Özledim yarim seni özledim
Vurdun şu sineme deli eyledin

Gül kokulu yarim sana neyledim
Seni bulamadım eşin yok senin
