“This past weekend, the Education show of WBBR, the radio station affiliate of the financial media agency Bloomberg L.P., featured Circle of Women’s very own Elizabeth Brook (2009-2010 Co-Director and also a founding member).
As members of the Education “Honor Roll” for the week, Elizabeth and also President and founder of the Kairos Society, Ankur Jain were given a chance to show how top college graduates can put their education to work for others.
“We (Circle of Women) were inspired and decided to take the opportunity to reach out to less privileged women in the developing world and provide them with an education by building schools.” –Elizabeth Brook
The community-based focus of the schools was noted, as well as the fact that for many of these young girls, it is their only chance at a secondary education. The host ended the segment citing startling numbers from Circle of Women that there are 19 million girls in the developing world without an education.
We are so excited that Elizabeth had this wonderful opportunity to talk about the importance of women’s education and demonstrate to a wider audience how we can all help to make a difference in the lives of girls around the world.
