In many cultures (dare one say most?) educating boys takes precedence over educating girls. A programme with proven success hot-houses girls from disadvantaged homes, raises their attainments and aspirations. Support for their academic achievement, coupled with mentoring by successful women, who become role models, raises their ambitions. Projects in India, Sub-Saharan Africa, Palestine and Israel all need your support so women can have a career, become economically independent, support their families, realise their potential and build their communities.
