Empowering Women and Girls through Education:
World Education Celebrates International
Women's Day 2010
For women and girls around the world, education is key to a bright future, and for those who live in poverty, it is essential to survival. Investing in girls' and women's education is one of the most effective ways to ensure long-term health and success.
For more than 50 years, World Education has empowered women and girls through education. Working in 26 countries around the world—including the United States—our programs promote literacy, health, livelihoods development, financial independence, and community improvement.
In honor of International Women's Day 2010, we have created a slide show that highlights several World Education programs that have helped unleash girls' and women's potential around the globe. Our programs build skills and confidence, and give women and girls more control over their lives. Please join World Education in celebrating these women, and the women in your life, today, and every day.
