Why is education for girls and women important? 

Girls and women, confronted from birth with multiple discriminations and violence, are at the top of the list. the vulnerability pyramid.

While today many studies show that women contribute more than men to the development of our societies, twice as many girls as boys still do not have access to elementary school in developing countries.

A girl deprived of an education is deprived of her fundamental rights. She is relegated to household chores, exposed to early pregnancy and marriage, and to dependency.

The empowerment of girls and women is a key lever for accelerating sustainable development and building a more resilient and peaceful world.

Education is a weapon of mass peace.

Nelson Mandela spoke of education as the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world. Let's put it in the hands of girls and women because they are the ones who will change the world.

Some examples of the impact of our programs

Each year, through our programs in Africa, Asia and Europe, we help more than one million women and girls to unlock their potential and build a better future. We know that education is the best way to transform lives and ensure peace and social and economic stability in marginalized communities.

Socio-cultural barriers hinder girls' access to education.

Through the SCOLFILLE ("Scolarisation des Filles") program, we enable 1,872 girls aged 9 to 13 to return to school.

This project is based on the establishment of bridging classes in public elementary school. After a year of accelerated learning, the participants return to the mainstream education system to continue their studies.

In Laos

Gender disparities are reflected in upper secondary education, where girls' attendance is only 63%. Among ethnic minority groups, girls are further discriminated against and experience early marriage and unwanted pregnancies. Through our WOMEN'S ENTREPRENEURSHIP program, we are creating employment or entrepreneurial opportunities for 860 ethnic minority Laotian women living in rural areas to build their professional capacity.
