"When a country educates its girls, its mortality rates usually fall, fertility rates decline, and the health and education prospects of the next generation improve.” – World Bank
We are a group of 58 executive MBA students from Ivey Business School committed to supporting women's education in advancing gender equality. We have partnered with ME TO WE to raise $50,000 to build school rooms in the Maasai Mara community of Kenya. These school rooms will provide educational programming for the young girls of that community.
We plan to reach our goal by the summer of 2018, with several of us going to Kenya to participate in the school rooms build.
