International Day of the Girl

On the occasion of International Day of the Girl, Almas Jiwani Foundation (AJF) reiterates its pledge to work for the betterment of girls from marginalized communities throughout the world. By providing them access to bio-sustainable energy, education and technology which will encourage entrepreneurship and employment among them, thus enabling them to become financially independent. Because AJF firmly believes that financial independence is the key that will unlock the confidence, courage and strength that women of the future need to make gender equality a reality. Evidence accrued over decades of international development work have proven that the status and role of women is the best clue to a nation’s growth potential, and is a key factor in determining a society’s standard of living. Hence, AJF seeks to realize its vision of global prosperity though an unwavering focus on girls – tomorrow’s women.
