Empowering Women and Girls
The benefits of providing girls and women education, training, and employment reaches far beyond the individual recipient. Research compiled across health, economics, education, and social welfare sectors demonstrates that progress and development is indeed achieved through empowering women and educating children and youth.
Educating Children and Youth
Providing school supplies and other resources is so much more than simply giving a pen or pencil to a child in need. Whether it be a spelling book or a computer, these valuable resources inspire children to get excited about learning- to explore, discover, and cultivate their talents or find solutions to problems that impact their communities. Supporting education helps expose children to new worlds, inspires innovation, unleashes exciting possibilities, and ultimately changes lives.
“The fastest way to change society is to mobilize the women of the world."
-- Charles Malik
“The single most important way to encourage women and girls to stand up for their rights is education, and we can do far more to promote universal education in poor countries.”
– – Nicholas D. Kristof
