I find hard to believe that we are on the 21st century and women around the world are still being victims of man power abuse, are neglected by societies, rejected the right to study or work. Someone that I admire deeply (Greg Mortenson) said "Educate a boy, and you educate an individual. Educate a girl, and you educate a community" which ironically is an African proverb. Especially in the African continent women are constantly being victims of abuse (of all kinds), for these reason I decided that helping even in a tiny bit to develop schools or projects that will empower women, in those communities, will set a path for a change.
