Leymah Gbowee is a Liberian peace activist and founder of Gbowee Peace Foundation Africa which provides educational and leadership opportunities to girls. In her passionate Ted Talk, Gbowee reminds us why educating girls is so important. She speaks of a Liberian village where only one girl made it to ninth grade. This is not an isolated incident in one African village, but a trend across the continent as a whole. Empowering girls through education is the goal of A2Empowerment along with several other organizations. Spread the word to help every girl have access to education!
