One Girl Can: Fighting for Female Empowerment through Education
Global News sat down with One Girl Can Founder, Lotte Davis to discuss how the organization has grown from building schools to offering a new robust entrepreneurship program for their students.
"We started out by building schools for girls, and we realized that that wasn’t really going to help us impact gender inequality. So we began offering scholarships to make sure they all went to high school, then we offered university scholarships to make sure they got into leadership positions and really over time, they informed the work that we do. If they aren't earning a living, we aren't doing our job properly" says Lotte. Hear about how One Girl Can has evolved over the years and about their upcoming BE in Kenya virtual fundraiser in this interview.
