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.

Congratulations to Seynabou Demba and all our Senegal scholars for passing their latest grade-level exams! All Women's Global Senegal scholars will be moving to the next grade this school year. Women's Global works to provide tutoring and mentoring support to these young trailblazers, as they are often the first girls in their families and communities to receive a formal education.

Women's Global scholar Khady Biyaye (middle, with her parents) is the first in her family to get an education. Neither of her parents went to school, and after watching their other children struggle to make a living without any schooling, they were happy that Khady was given this opportunity. Khady used to have to cross the river, some days in water up to her thights, and walk two miles along a dirt path to get to the nearest school. Thankfully, there is now a local school in her village.
