Julia Bolz: Education is a building block to eliminating poverty, oppression, and extremism. And one of the things that we confronted when we first came into the country is that they needed everything. And we approached the leaders and we said, “What do you need?

Statistically, education is tied into all different statistics – child mortality, maternal mortality, land mind victims, harmful traditional practices like female genital mutilation, child slavery, early childhood marriage. And it’s all tied together. If you could educate the girls, you will change all those statistics.
