    A basic education is an essential human right and should be a global, national, and local priority. Education is essential to understand the world and be able to function effectively in it. There is a direct correlation between women's levels of education and socio-economic status and health. Education empowers women to make informed decisions regarding their futures - knowledge is power!

    Education “is a bridge from misery to hope.” - adapted from quote by Kofi Annan.

    Mission Statement & Highlighted Topics

    Our new mission statement is Increasing Awareness of Global Issues in Education. This mission has been divided into four areas of emphasis:

    1. Global Citizenship

    2. Literacy

    3. Equal Access

    4. Access to and Initiatives in Continuing Education after High School
