Meghan Markle brings clean water to Rwanda

The Duchess of Sussex visited a school in Rwanda soon after becoming a World Vision ambassador in 2016.

Clean water, a counsellor and help for girls who start their periods, means that young girls in Rwanda can feel safe to attend school.

Meghan helped bring clean water to a community, thanks to the donations of ordinary people worldwide.

She was inspired by how this empowered women and girls within the community.

Access to clean water in a community keeps young girls in school, because they aren't walking hours each day to source water for their families

Meghan Markle promotes women's rights in India

In 2017, Meghan travelled again as a World Vision Global Ambassador – this time to India. Continuing to advocate strongly for gender equality, Meghan focused on bringing greater awareness to girls education.

She met with local activists and educators to talk about improving access to girls’ latrines, a significant problem for 63 million teenage girls in India.

Every young girl deserves a bright future, wherever they are in the world.

Donate to make sure they get it.

Meghan Markle
Do one act of kindness every day. It doesn't need to be big. It just needs to be something.
