Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
