At USAID, we believe that education serves as a driver for development and the elimination of extreme poverty. Education is transformational for individuals and societies. It also creates pathways to better health, economic growth, a sustainable environment, and peaceful, democratic societies.

At USAID, we believe that gender equality and women’s empowerment isn’t a part of development, but the core of development, fundamental to achieving our sustainable development goals.

For societies to thrive, women and girls must have access to education, healthcare and technology. They must have opportunities to control resources, lands and markets. And they must have equal rights and equal opportunities as breadwinners, peace-builders and leaders. When women and girls reach their full potential, no matter what field they may be in, they can become powerful exponents for uplifting their families, their communities and their nation, thereby building a stronger Philippines and ASEAN.
