Everywhere in the world women are faced with social, cultural, and economic barriers to equality. The main focus of the IRIE Dawta Program is to uplift girls and young women to develop skills, become independent and produce excellence in all they do. By empowering girls and young women, we are giving them the opportunity to reinvest their skills into their families, communities, and countries. This not only brings them independence, but also improves the world around them. When women and girls rise, their families rise, their communities rise, their societies rise and impact and benefits are evident.
