Our goals are to provide the following:

Women and girls deserve to lead full and productive lives through access to education
Diversity and Fellowship
Women from varied backgrounds and perspectives work together to improve the lives of women and girls
Education is the pathway to economically empowering women and girls.

they are more likely to be enrolled in school and to reach higher levels of education
