Educate Girls – Qatar Foundation WISE Awards
Educate Girls is an organisation in India that strives to give girls an equal opportunity in education to boys. In many parts of the world, not just India, education is considered an unnecessary and un-affordable luxury for girls, whose primary role is seen as helping out at home.
The Educate Girls foundation has set out to change the hearts and minds of communities where these attitudes prevail by mobilizing and leveraging public, private and community resources.
