The Asian University for Women (AUW) support Foundation recently publicized the launch of an international crowdfunding campaign, #ProgressStartsWithEducation. The campaign aims to raise a total of US$150,000 which provides 10 women with the opportunity to pursue a year of education at the liberal arts university.
In order to address the challenges faced by the developing countries, it is critical to empower women through education so that they are able to take on leadership roles in their societies. AUW has secured donations and support from various corporate partners of this campaign, and is committed to use education as a mean to address the fundamental gender inequality in Asia and the Middle East.
