#Africa4Her 2017: Investing in Women & Girls


Some people call it “empowering” women and girls. We call it “investing.” That’s because each action you take to increase a woman’s access to equal opportunities in the workplace, a girl’s access to equal opportunities in the classroom, and steps you take to eliminate gender-based violence benefits the community, country, and continent.

#Africa4Her is an initiative to raise awareness and drive positive action around the challenges women face. The change starts with you, be bold for change and pledge to invest in women and girls today.
