In the mid 1800s in America, women stood together for the right to go to college and thus began the sorority movement. Now, almost 150 years later and more than 5 million strong, we vow to continue our Founders’ legacy by standing together again to help girls and women go to school around the world.
As women, who have in common a college education, we know that access to quality schooling affords a better life for a woman and that of her family. For too many girls and women around the world, access to quality education is often limited. And education is the answer to many of the global issues related to women-poverty, oppression, misogyny, brutality. Ultimately, more and more educated girls will mean stronger and healthier villages, communities and entire countries.
One person can make a small difference, but as a community of 5 million, our collective efforts will be transforming for generations to come.
