About

There are an estimated 263 million children and adolescents around the world who are out of school. More than half of them are girls, and most live in conflict-affected countries and in rural areas. Basic literacy and numeracy skills are the fundamental tools that will enable girls and women, as well as boys and men, to take hold of their lives and develop solutions adapted to the needs of their communities and country.

Research convincingly shows that programs directed to the education of girls are more effective than virtually any other community investment in the developing world.

Basic quality education provides girls with access to health and nutrition information for themselves and their families - including helping to prevent the transmission of HIV/AIDS. It provides a safe place to grow as they learn. It gives them the knowledge to provide economic support to their family. It delays marriage and pregnancy, thereby lowering infant and maternal mortality. And an educated woman is more likely to send her children - both boys and girls - to school, thereby increasing the likelihood of future generations receiving an education.

Education of women is the key to economic productivity and political stability. Healthy, safe, empowered girls transform families, communities and countries.

We have chosen to invest in the women of tomorrow by investing in the education of the girls of today. Our completely volunteer-run public foundation has funded $2.4 million in education projects in Africa, Asia and Central America. Our administration costs are less than 1% of donations received.
