The vast majority of the world's poor are women. Two-thirds of the world's illiterates are female. Of the millions of school age children not in school, the majority are girls. Studies show that when women are supported and empowered, all of society benefits. Their families are healthier, more children go to school, agricultural productivity improves and incomes increase. In short, communities become more resilient. Did you know that two-thirds of our students are women? And 7 out of 10 of them are economically active within 3 months after they finish their course? GetOn empowering women!
