Our Founder's Vision
Creating Peace in Our Lifetime

Imagine a world where every child has access to become anyone they
wish to be, where all girls are educated and can accomplish anything they dream. We believe that there can be peace in our
lifetime and that education is the key.

"At Schools for Girls, we believe in a world filled with equality, love, peace and kindness, and where all people have access to a quality education. I believe that this is one of the highest expressions of our humanity. 

So why start empowering girls through education?

After volunteering with Heifer International, Invisible Children, Oxfam America, and traveling to Uganda with Medical Missions Foundation, extensive community outreach, learning and research, Schools for Girls was born.

I realized that there are millions of girls in the world with so much potential, yet so little access to education. And, the community impact of girls being educated is immense. I thought to myself, if someone were to care for these children, partner with the communities where they live, provide sustainable resources, and help their voices be heard, the inequalities to accessing education could be resolved. With lots of love, tons of action, and an unstoppable drive to create a kinder world, I can now say that Schools for Girls is helping girls go to school, one community at a time."

 

 

 

 

The Women and Girls Who Impacted My Life...
Even when there were language barriers, these individuals touched my heart in ways I could not have imagined. 

We have the power to provide every girl with access to a quality education. Join me on our mission to create a more equal and kind world.
