As you know, John and I are committed to She's the First and the remarkable work we are doing to end gender equality around the world, and break the cycle of poverty and violence affecting so many young women in low income countries. We truly believe that education is the key to everything, because if you educate a young woman, you educate an entire family, a rural village, and the reach is boundless. As Board Chair, I personally feel so fortunate to be able to sponsor young women in both Guatemala which John and I visited, and Uganda, where 2 glorious young women named Esther and Dorcas , respectively 11 and 13 years old, and through the schooling that STF makes possible, have launched a successful campaign for the females in their village to make sanitary pads, something they previously had NO access to. These young women were honored at our STF Mentor Breakfast this week, and I had a wonderful vision of a world full of similar young women - imagine the possibilities. Please join us - you too have an opportunity to make the world a better place for young women who have no where else to turn. Thank you in advance for all you choose to do, and happy holidays.
