Our Work

Our years of experience working with women and girls has taught us that education is the key to unlocking economic empowerment of the world’s women and girls. When women and girls are educated, they have opportunity, choice and power to make healthy decisions for themselves and their families.

How We Do It

Our goal is to make their lives better

Our Dream Programs are primarily delivered locally by our clubs and members in 21 countries and territories. They provide the muscle and on-the-ground work that make our programs come alive.

Learn about the importance of education in achieving economic empowerment in our research paper, Education and Economic Empowerment: The Future for Women and Girls.
