Why women and girls?

122 women aged 25-34 are living in extreme poverty for every 100 men of the same age group.

Indoor air pollution from using combustible fuels for household energy caused 4.3 million deaths in 2012, with women and girls accounting for 6 out of every 10 of these. 15 million girls of primary school age will never get the chance to learn to read or write in primary school compared to 10 million boys. Women are significantly underrepresented in STEM majors — for instance, only around 21% of engineering majors are women and only around 19% of computer and information science majors are women.

Clustered Deprivations are caused by these margins as females who are poorly educated are more likely to experience high level of poverty and as such marry prematurely as well as breeding poor kids.

An investment in education is an investment in the economy. An investment in renewable energy is an investment in the earth. Investing in Technological education of underserved girls is a chance for them to compete in a digital age, reduce poverty and child mortality.
