OUR MISSION PARTNER
THE 130 MILLION
Our mission is to eliminate the 130 million statistic – that is, the number of girls in the 21st century still denied an education; and to rebuild communities that evolve into circular economies.
Research has shown that 85% of women share their learnings with family and friends (compared to 15% men). We believe that investing in educating girls, specifically, will
transform entire communities, while ending oppression and liberating our gender.
We are a team of female equalists on a mission to stir a change in human behavior for a healthier planet and economy.
