Education remains one of the most powerful return on society in terms of greatest chance of economic growth, overall health and prosperity. However, in many parts of the globe, women and girls are often left out of this incredible life altering opportunity. Girls often carry the burden of helping the family with the domestic chores to run the household, including cooking, cleaning and child rearing, which provides barriers for them to enroll in school. Additionally, high fees prevent the lowest income from enrolling or continuing studies.
Asia Initiatives devotes programming to the betterment of individuals, girls, women and families to education. We focus on the efforts to enroll children in school, continued enrollment, and literacy in adults in women. We recognize the importance of investment in oneself as one of the most powerful efforts one can make.
