Global Activism: Catching up with the Women's Global Education Project
In Africa the overwhelming majority of girls drop out of school after the 6th grade. Global Activist Amy Maglio was living in Senegal and decided she needed to do something to help more girls get into school and stay there. She created the Women's Global Education Project (WGEP) to support girls’ education in Senegal and Kenya. Maglio will update us on what WGEP has been doing lately to help girls in those countries escape extreme poverty through education.
