As the world is changing and everything is becoming more virtual, same is happening with education. People are learning more and more online as its more easy and fun for them. They don’t have to worry about not having enough time to attend regular classes or not having proper ways to travel to learn. They want to learn and they could do it whenever and wherever they want, with the ease of their homes or in extra time from their offices.
As we have a mission to educate every girl globally, its important to keep up with the technology and new trends as well. Because we are working towards a better future, its important to acknowledge what the future actually is and that’s why we partnered with Facebook’s Internet.org’s Freebasics platform and creating 1000 free online modules for girls to be able to learn and get educated wherever they are.
As we mentioned in our last report we already started working towards our module and our initial modules were up on freebasics in more than 5 different languages, we are so excited to update all of you that we have uploaded 100 modules on freebasics which are available for over 1 billion people and thousands of them are regularly reading these modules and learning from them.
We are so happy and excited about the feedback that we are getting about our modules and just wanted to say thanks to all our wonderful donors who are helping us in our mission and motivating us by showing that there are many people out there who are just like us and actually care about girls education.
We are also planning to enter another city for our live training and will update all of our donors as soon as we are done with the planning phase.
Dear wonderful donors of Educate a Girl, We hope this report finds you well. As we mentioned in our previous reports, last year was great for us as we were recognized as the top 2% women led initiatives in the MENA region by WEMENA, partnered with Facebook’s Internet.org’s Freebasics platform for the online version of our programme, launched in another city of Pakistan where we educated 250 girls as well as educated 1000 more girls in Nigeria. Same like last year, this year till now has been amazing and showing new ways to involve more and more people in our mission to educate million girls globally. We are so excited to share that on Freebasics Educate a girl pg, we have more than 50 modules now which are available for thousands of girls to read and learn from. For now we are more focused on having modules in soft skills like leadership, negotiation, team building as well as on entrepreneurship, mental health and coding etc. many of these modules are also available in different languages like Turkish, Russian, German urdu etc. So for now this was the update about our programme but the reason we are sharing this with you all is because we would like to get you all involved more in different ways. If any of you would like to translate our modules in different languages or would like to provide content than please come forward and contact us and help us in reaching our target to dissolve the issue of girl education completely. As all of this wouldn’t have been possible without the help of our wonderful donors like you all, we would like you to be more and more connected with us in our journey. Together, we are transforming lives
We believe that Educate a Girl and she will do the rest… We are amazed to see several alumni in great jobs, others simply open to life's possibilities and starting businesses and employing others. And this is what keep us motivated to do more and more for the education of girls but this year on the occasion of Mother’s day, we at Educate a Girl decided to educate some mothers and that’s why we have a mini project under Educate a Girl .. which is Educate a Mother in Pakistan and give her a future.. https://www.globalgiving.org/microprojects/educate-a-mom-in-pakistan-and-give-her-a-future/
A mother is one of the largest influences in her child’s life and with this power comes responsibility. The care and love a mother provides, moulds her children into the adults they are destined to become, but her own education and financial success has a great effect on her children’s future. The great achievements of her life which her children appreciate today are all due to her attending school in her youth as a girl and this education has presented a beautiful journey to her transforming from a girl into a mother who is viewed in a positive and respectable light today.
Education is one of the most critical areas of empowerment for mothers and this education leads to social change and advantages for her children. Having an educated mother in developing countries is more important than ever because if a mother is well educated and has financial success through either going out into the working world or working from home using knowledge gained from education, her children will see their empowered mother as a role model for their own lives.
Keeping all of this in mind we decided to educate some amazing mothers so they could help their children to reach new heights in life. And to make this happen we ask for help from our wonderful donors like you all.
