One educated girl affects her community. One community effects a world of change. Circle of Women is a nonprofit with a mission to provide access to education for girls without it. We strategize with local partners in developing countries to create projects that bridge the gaps between secondary-aged schoolgirls and their education.
Help us expand our circle and start a chapter at your high school! As a founding member, you'll have the opportunity to: * create fundraising events * spread awareness * recruit volunteers * engage your school and community in our powerful mission * empower yourself and girls a world away
See our website circleofwomen.org for more details about our organization and current/past projects.
Steps to Starting a Chapter:
1. Brush up on our organization - learn about our mission, past projects, and impact so that you are in a better position to inform and lead your future chapter members.
2. Build a leadership team - reach out to friends or other passionate students to support you through this process and lead your chapter with you. LT's are usually ~5 members to at least fill the following positions: President (or 2 co-presidents), Fundraising Director, Cause Awareness Director, PR Director
3. Apply/take steps to become a recognized club on your school's campus - this process and its requirements will vary from school to school
4. Stay in contact with our Circumference Director throughout the way! - she will provide you with necessary materials and happily guide your through all the above steps
5. And just like that you're on your way to recruiting your first volunteers and becoming an official Circle of Women chapter!
If you are interested in getting involved, please respond with 1) why you are interested 2) your contact information 3) name of your high school and how you'd like to get involved and 4) any questions you may have.

About Circle of Women
P.O Box 381365, Cambridge, MA 02238, US
Our mission is to equip girls with self-reliance, knowledge, and increased capacities to both enhance their own lives and to contribute productively to their societies. We believe this is the best way to affect positive, global change. Our philosophy is that one school will affect one community, while one community will make a world of change.
We’re a young nonprofit dedicated to increasing access to education for women and girls in developing countries. Our first project was the construction of a secondary school for 1200 girls in Afghanistan, where the female literacy rate is only 12% (UNICEF). Our second project is the renovation of a government-run school for 600 girls in Keiri Reki, Pakistan. While a group of college students and recent graduates fund-raise, organize, and spread awareness at home, experienced collaborators manage construction locally.
