We ask this Mother’s Day to give a gift that will change a life – in addition to the flowers and chocolates you already bought her, give a gift of quality education to empower mothers and daughters for generations to come.
We all collectively recognize that when women and girls are empowered through education;
- Fertility, population growth, and infant and child mortality fall and family health improves.
- They are more politically active and better informed about their legal rights and how to exercise them.
- Their earning capacity increases, in turn, has a positive effect on child nutrition.
Education helps women and their daughters take advantage of opportunities that could benefit them and their families for generations to come; equipping them for the workforce and grasping their legal rights.
Girls all around the world are excluded from education, or are in school but not learning the skills to equip them for the 21-st century job landscape.
This Mother’s Day, we want to change this, but we need your help. We want to support mothers and daughters by providing access to the quality education they need to unlock their full potential. Because, let’s face it, when a girl is educated, the whole world changes.
Did you know that every extra year of education a girl receives, her income will increase by 10-20%
This Mother’s Day, support Ugandan Mothers who also want quality education for their daughters, but cannot access it.
We launched a crowdfunding initiative to empower these Mothers, have a look HERE
Make sure to spread the message and empower Ugandan Mothers by providing quality education to their children.
Support towards this initiative and share on your social channels to raise awareness.
