Dear Graduate Women Donors,
UNESCO’s latest state of education report shows that women are increasingly seeking a tertiary education, the percentage of female teachers increased from 92% to 94%, and girls are progressively outperforming boys in primary education. (UNESCO) While we have seen great advancements for women and girls, it is crucial to continue our fight. For every 100 men enrolled in a tertiary education, there are only 76 women enrolled. Many women and girls are still excluded or discouraged from continuing their education in their communities, institutions, and countries. Women remain more likely to be illiterate than men. As education is still the greatest tool to close the gender inequality gap, it must be at the forefront of our mission towards building our desired global community.
Among supporting GWI international advocacy work to increase girls’ opportunity for tertiary education, GWI’s Girls Education for Brighter Futures supporters also help to fund women and girls’ equal access to education through the GWI Bina Roy Partners in Development (BRPID) programme. BRPID supports locally developed and operated projects to empower women and girls through education and leadership development. We invite all GWI donors and friends to read and share the 2022 project summaries here.All projects are proceeding through the mid-term with the support of our donors.
The 2023-2024 Call for Applications will soon go out to GWI member affiliates for a new round of projects. GWI expects many quality projects to commence in 2023 that will impact the lives of thousands of women and girls through projects addressing the barriers to education, life skills training, localizing Sustainable Development Goals project, and environmental projects – all with the goal of increasing the quality of education offered and the opportunity to attain lifelong livelihood skills training as a means to reduce the poverty cycle through education.
Graduate Women International (GWI) continues working tirelessly to coordinate and manage advocacy projects and initiatives on local, national, and international levels. We need your help too. Please reach out to anyone you know and invite them to donate as well. Your contributions matter, and we are sincerely grateful.
