COMMITTED TO PROMOTING GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT
Empower Educate Youth is a grassroots non-profit organization. Using Empower Educate Youth as a platform, we strive to communicate with youth in local high schools and middle schools to raise awareness of emergent problems in the primarily unequal, paternalistic societies of third-world countries and local communities. We want to help women and girls around the world take pride in themselves through genuinely acknowledging and accepting their female beauty. Imagine being a girl, not having access to or being accustomed to sanitary products and having to compromise your education and other activities due to the fact that you menstruate. As women and men of virtue united under humanity, it is our utmost priority that we provide girls with educational opportunities through solutions for female hygiene. Through this organization, we will send over pads and other supplies necessary for the maintenance of menstrual hygiene to allow girls to further their education while on their period, empowering them to break down gender and societal norms.
Our team is a group of hardworking, committed, and passionate individuals united under the cause of empowering women and educating youth. We educate youth about the imminent need for furtherance of female education and normalize the concept of female hygiene and garner support for global development.
