INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL: GIRLS CAN BE BUSINESS OWNERS!

This year, Save the Children’s moto for the International Day of the Girl is “Unscripted and Unstoppable Girl Force.” Today, more girls are getting educated, fewer are getting married or becoming mothers while still children, and more are gaining the skills they need to excel in their careers. Today, we are highlighting the story of two sisters who managed to break the boundaries set for girls within their society, by starting up their own business.

International Literacy Day: “There is so much a woman can do, and we are ready.”

In Egypt Save the Children works extensively on literacy programs with children, youth, and mothers – Egyptians, migrants, and refugees. Our Literate Village (LV), a four-year project funded by USAID, provides a model that breaks the cycle of inter-generational illiteracy in rural Egypt. By providing sustainable and effective learning approaches, LV fosters a culture of reading across communities and generations, and uses literacy and education to strengthen local community and governance structures. The experience of El-Heyeebi demonstrates the power of education to transform lives.
