Why Girls’ Globe is Suspending Its Use of Facebook and Instagram

Tech giant Facebook Inc., recently renamed Meta, has for a long time known of its detrimental effects on people.

Brave activists and organizations are stepping up their work to support women and girls in Afghanistan. Despite the fear and worry, there is hope in the resilience and strength of the activists working for change.

In this post, I share four important organizations that need your support in this current crisis.
