Mission:
We mobilize students to provide access to education for girls without it.

We collaborate with communities eager to implement innovative, sustainable, and localized solutions to increase girls’ access to secondary schools. In doing so, we cultivate a new generation of global citizens by providing students at home with hands-on opportunities in organizational leadership, fundraising, and project management.

We also raise public awareness about the health, education, and interests, so that our project becomes a global exchange of information and resources.
Results:
In 2009, after 18 months of construction and fundraising about $180,000, Circle opened the doors to its first girls school. The two-story building has twelve classrooms that service the community as a gathering place after school hours. Local leaders registered the school with the Afghan Ministry of Education and designed the curriculum after state standards.

In 2010, after the major earthquake hit Pakistan and badly damaged the local secondary school for girls, Circle of Women, in partnership with the Nathiagali Residence Committee, embarked on a large-scale re-building of the girls’ school involving the construction and installation of four new bathrooms and a septic tank, a computer lab, two drinking water tanks and a library.

Currently, Circle of Women is building a boarding house in Cumbum, India, to increase access to education for girls who would otherwise have to stay at home because of recent increases in reports of sexual assault, and the single-sex (male-only) policy of many local hostels.

Circle of Women is a really special organization that gives college students the unique opportunity to have a real impact on bridging the gender gap in education. Not only that, but volunteers also develop their own skills in areas such as fundraising, project development and PR, to name a few. ... more »
