1. Do read these facts produced by The Girl Effect:

  • An extra year of primary school boosts girls’ eventual wages by 10 to 20 percent. An extra year of secondary school: 15 to 25 percent.

  • When women and girls earn income, they reinvest 90 percent of it into their families, as compared to only 30 to 40 percent for men.

  • Out of the world’s 130 million out-of-school youth, 70 percent are girls.

2. Do wear Sseko Sandals.  Sseko Designs supports young women in Uganda to further their education by providing fair work for them to earn money towards their college tuition. The sandals are handcrafted and beautifully made by these wonderful women.

3. Do watch the video of the recent graduates’ (all employees at Sseko) from Cornerstone Leadership Academy reaction to passing their exams. 1.52 minutes of pure joy!

4. Do love on the women in your life and find a way to acknowledge the ones that are yet to be.
