Mission & Vision
Mission: The mission of Girls Education International is to expand and support educational opportunities for underserved girls and women in remote and undeveloped regions of the world.
Vision: Girls Education International envisions a world where educational opportunities for women and girls are equal to those typically afforded boys and men, and thus provide the foundation for healthier and prosperous societies that reflect their unique cultural differences.
Since its inception in November 2006, GEI has been hard at work partnering with local organizations to bring education to girls and women in underserved areas. Currently we partner with nonprofit organizations in Pakistan, Liberia, and Tanzania.
