  • Education is the Foundation of Choice

    There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women.
    No other policy is as likely to raise economic productivity, or to reduce infant and maternal mortality.
    No other policy is as sure to improve nutrition and promote health.
    No other policy is as powerful in increasing the chances of education for the next generation.
