Women's Global Education Project

Women's Global Education Project was founded on the idea that everyone is entitled to an education, regardless of gender or economic status. We believe that universal education, gender equality and empowerment of women are critical to a society's development. Our mission is to provide access to education and develop training program that empower women and girls, particularly those in developing nations, to build better lives and foster equitable communities.

Many barriers exist in rural Senegalese communities that keep girls from going to school. These include lack of family funds and resources for school fees and supplies, bias towards boys, over reliance on women and girls for household and farm labor, practices such as early marriage and female genital mutilation, and the undervaluing of education for girls. Women's Global works to break down these barriers so that girls like scholar Oumy Diouf can have an opportunity to build a better future. (view small | med | large | orig)
