WHAT WE DO
Leveraging off current government investments in education,the model works at uniquely high scales and low costs even in the most traditional and tribal communities, promoting change from passive fatalism to entrepreneurial cultures.
The model is so powerful that governments are starting to pay for it.
“Many governments and NGOs want to mobilize communities to help with education. EGG has found one way that works.”
–Barbara Herz, Author “What Works in Girls’ Education,” Founder and former head of the World Bank’s Women in Development Division
“Investment in girls’ education may well be the highest return investment available in the developing world.”
– Lawrence H. Summers, Former Chief Economist, World Bank, and US Treasury Secretary
