Global Activism: Educating Girls in Africa

Amy Maglio, Executive Director, Women's Global Education Project

In Africa, 80 percent of girls who make it to school drop out after the 6th grade. Amy Maglio was living in Senegal and decided she wanted to do her part to help more girls go to school. The Women's Global Education Project now supports girls in Senegal and Kenya to help them get in school and stay in school.

The Women's Global Education Project will host their annual benefit Friday October 13 from 7-10 p.m. at Sonotheque in Chicago. It will feature world music, dance, auctions, and food with Jerome McDonnell as host.
