Hundreds of millions of girls around the world are not in school due to hardships and cultural expectations about a woman’s worth.
Education fosters democracy, political participation, and demand for equality. When women have access to safe and free education, they’re more likely to invest their resources into the quality of life for their families, their communities, and their countries.
Unfortunately, gender violence, discrimination, child marriage, sex trafficking, civil conflict, and many other factors can prohibit a girl from accessing the quality education she needs to fulfill her greatest potential.
We’re proud to contribute to organizations working to strengthen learning and leadership opportunities for girls so they can stay in school and transform their futures.
How we’re changing lives:
- Empowering the education and leadership of girls through Girl Up
- Supporting 12 years of free, safe, quality education for girls with Malala Fund
- Promoting education for children in impoverished communities with The Kikuyu Foundation
- Building schools, training teachers, and educating 250 million children through Pencils of Promise
