Quotes From Half the sky
"In the nineteenth century, the central moral challenge was slavery. In the twentieth century, it was the battle against totalitarianism. We believe that in this century the paramount moral challenge will be the struggle for gender equality around the world"
"It's no accident that the countries that have enjoyed an economic take off have been those that educated girls and then gave them the autonomy to move to the cities to find work"
How it impacted us
Half the Sky inspired us to take action - to find some meaningful way to help real women in a fundamental and long lasting way. Toward this end, we've decided to join forces with World Assistance for Cambodia in order help give children in rural Cambodia receive the education the need to bring confidence, security and prosperity to children and specifically girls. Women in Cambodia receive an average of 1.7 years of education their entire life. Giving these girls a better education is an important start in improving the local communities and the country as a whole. We are passionate about this project and are looking forward to using the funds we raise to enhance an existing school in Cambodia. Please help us reach our goal!
