This new site takes an unusual but increasingly common approach to good causes – commerce. The Girl Store allows you to buy the items girls in India need to be able to access education, and thus avoid an early marriage. The online shop was recently complemented by the opening of a pop-up shop in New York. It’s an interesting, controversial and simplistic approach which I am sure would not be popular among NGO’s here in the UK. I also wonder whether the commercial model really touches our natural altruism, or subverts it? What do you think?
