Education liberates the intellect, unlocks the imagination and is fundamental for self-respect.
It is the key to prosperity and opens a world of opportunities, making it possible for each of us to contribute to a progressive, healthy society. Learning benefits every human being and should be available to all.
Too much of the world’s wealth is held by a very small group of people. This often leads to financial and social discrimination. In order for nations to flourish, equality and prosperity must be available to everyone – regardless of gender, race, religious beliefs or economic status. When every individual is self-sufficient, the entire world prospers.
On the EWEI Online platform, members have the opportunity to interact with diverse women professionals from around the world on topics related to their professional and educational development. The platform plays host to discussions and provide resources on a variety of subjects. EWEI Online specifically targets young women in tertiary institutions and working professionals.
Topics are selected based on needs assessments and emerging trends in education, science, information technology amongst others. EWEI Online is another contribution of EWEI to achieving SDGs 4, 10 and 17.
To build a better world, we need to be supportive, empathetic, inventive, passionate, and above all, cooperative.
