Wi' merry sangs, an' friendly cracks, 
I wat they did na weary; 
And unco tales, an' funnie jokes- 
Their sports were cheap an' cheery...
-- Robert Burns, Halloween

Educating girls and women is widely acknowledged as the most 
powerful and effective way to address global poverty. Women who

families, and are more likely to educate their own children—
breaking the cycle of illiteracy in one generation. 


Jada reading
