EDUCATION IS THE KEY TO EMPOWERING WOMEN
Approximately 62 million girls in the world are not in school.
EDUCATION: THE KEY TO CHANGE IN THE WORLD
TOGETHER...WE'RE HELPING WOMEN CHANGE THE WORLD.
Education in reading and writing, math and science. Education in hygiene and nutrition. And, yes, education that impresses one of the, if not the, core of gender equality and social injustices, that we are all created equal. That all individuals have rights to be treated fairly in all areas of life.
And investing in education for women and girls leads to economic empowerment and growth. When women and girls are educated, they bring their children, families and communities along with them which results in more education and empowerment.
