Empowering Women & Girls

Rosie the Riveter has hung in our offices for a very long time. You see, our 3rd and 4th generation leadership are those kind of women. Educated. Accomplished. Confident. But that isn't the way of life for 130 million girls - they're uneducated, and it compounds. Two-thirds of the world's illiterate population are women. And we are doing something about it. It's not just the right thing to do; it's a moral imperative. You see, when girls aren't educated they get sold into marriages by the age of 14, have children by 15 and have no hope of supporting themselves by 18. So they get sexually trafficked.

Would you raise your daughter that way? We encourage you to donate to The Rotary Foundation and earmark your gift for Literacy. It's a gift that grows beyond money.
