Partner Story 1
“We were never consulted in important matters of the Panchayat [village council]. Panchayat meetings were not even taking place. Now, when all four of us get together in our capacity as Elected Women Representatives and go to the Panchayat demanding for meetings to be held, the male Sarpanch and Gram Sevak are left with no option but to conduct such meetings. This also demonstrates the need for women leaders to unite, cooperate and support each other in a patriarchal society like ours.” Rekha – Ward Panch, Lunol Panchayat, Reodor block, Sirohi District, Rajasthan, India

Partner Story 3
Eunice Watsaliranji, at just 8 years old, was surpassing her classmates in primary school because of access to early education. She is now a shining star. After graduating from Champiti Nursery School in Malawi, Eunice excelled in grade one. She was given a passage from a grade eight Chichewa textbook which she read without any difficulties, and even started getting up in front of class and teaching her classmates in reading. Eunice proves that access to early education is critical to child development and future learning.
[tag friend], on this #GivingTuesday, I nominate you to support @HungerProject in their work to empower girls and boys with an education. Eunice and children like her who access an early education are more likely to thrive in school. [Tagged friend], share this story, give now to empower girls and boys and pass on the empowerment!
