Our mission is to help communities bring transformational change to girls’ lives thru the power of holistic, quality education.
Our vision is that every girl is equipped to realize her potential and become a catalyst for change in her own life and that of her community.
We do this in underserved rural areas of the global south where girls are most vulnerable and marginalized, via deep partnerships with education-centered and locally-driven initiatives. Through collaboration, GEC brings assets to help achieve a local vision for the future.
We create and support connections; collaboration is the key to how we do our work.
Honesty & Integrity
We maintain the highest ethical standards; we are open and forthright.
We leverage the resources and expertise of our collaborative partners.
We are resourceful and adaptive. We respond to opportunities with deliberate pace and action.
We are curious, open-minded and continuous learners.
We are empathetic and value diversity in all forms.
