Smashing Barriers To Education
We are part of the movement to smash the barriers keeping girls out of school. Through collaboration and allyship, GEC offers assets to help achieve a local vision for the future. We support but don’t lead; we link arms with local change-makers on their initiatives centered on educating girls.
GEC feeds social change by equipping marginalized, at-risk girls with education and life skills to help them develop their own agency and realize their fullest potential. We do this through deep partnerships with locally-driven and owned initiatives in rural, under-served areas of developing economies.
A gender-equal world where all girls are in school and no longer barred from fulfilling and life-equipping education simply because they are a girl.
