Educational equity for girls and young women
Creating a Climate to Help Girls Find Their Own Voices
In a region where political turmoil and economic distress are part of the daily landscape, families often choose to educate their sons but pull their daughters from school. Without an education, women are encouraged to marry early and, if they do enter the workforce, their employment options are limited. With the help of AFEDJ donors, schools owned by the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem offer opportunities for female students to excel and become leaders in their communities.
