The Girl Effect

This video is very inspirational. It reminds us all how much power one choice or opportunity can have in our own lives and in those of others. I hope you are inspired by this video, not only girls, but guys who want to be better people too.

"Once you educate the boys, they tend to leave the villages and go search for work in the cities, but the girls stay home, become leaders in the community, and pass on what they’ve learned. If you really want to change a culture, to empower women, improve basic hygiene and health care, and fight high rates of infant mortality, the answer is to educate girls."

— Greg Mortenson (Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace... One School at a Time)
