In general worldwide, females receive significantly less education than males and face increased societal and personal constraints to education. This affects the entire planet, as according to the United Nations, educating women benefits everyone. Women invest in their families and this advantage continues throughout generations. The more educated a mother is, the more likely her children are to be educated and the more resources attained for the entire family.
The University of the People will provide education for women worldwide. UoPeople's unique formula overcomes many of the constraints that hinder women from attaining education, including financial, geographic, societal, placement, and personal limitations. UoPeople is extremely proud to have been able to cut down almost the entire cost of higher education. The university charges no tuition. To remain sustainable, a one-time application fee and nominal examination fees are charged.
Through educating women, University of the People is investing in the success of populations worldwide. As the education of women increases, their access to better jobs and wages improves and marginalization is reduced. Educated women can contribute more to their families' success and while their families' struggles decrease, poverty overall also decreases. Investing in women's education has been proven to be one of most effective ways to reduce poverty worldwide.
