Educate Girls Globally: Education, Literacy and Community for Change

Simon Mainwaring / Causes / 9 years ago

One of the highlights of my recent trip to Doha was the chance to work with people like Lawrence Chickering and Safeena Husain, the founder and Executive Director (respectively) of Educate Girl Globally (EGG) that is revolutionizing schooling and the opportunities for young women in India.

Here Lawrence and Safeena take us through the exciting and hard won lessons that inform an education model that is achieving incredible results and expanding exponentially. Their work is to be applauded, celebrated and disseminated as far and wide as possible.

Please support their meaningful work.
