"We EMPOWER underprivileged women!"

Women make up half of the world's population and yet represent a staggering 70% of the world's poor. We live in a world in which women living in poverty face gross inequalities and social justice from birth to death. From poor education to poor nutrition to vulnerable and low pay employment, the sequence of discrimination that a woman may suffer during her entire life is unacceptable but all too common.

We Enable Young Girls To Reach Their Full Potential

Investing in girls' education is one of the most effective ways to reduce poverty. Investments in secondary school education for girls yields especially high dividends.

Girls who have been educated are likely to marry later and to have smaller and healthier families. Educated women can recognize the importance of health care and know how to seek it for themselves and their children. Education helps girls and women to know their rights and to gain confidence to claim them.
