Committed to success for all women
In Senegal, World Education is working with community partners like Aminata (pictured) to create opportunities for women's leadership through radio.
"I do not want women to be victims of a situation, and I will commit myself further to make the Casamance a good place to live: an area of justice, entrepreneurship, and success for all women."
Aminata Mané, President of the Santa Yalla Women's Union.
In 2005, World Education helped launch the first radio station in the Casamance entirely managed by women. These radio stations, which World Education now supports throughout Senegal, are platforms for women to shape policy in their communities by addressing issues such as women's rights, reproductive health, gender-based violence, economic empowerment, and women's advocacy in local government.
