RGI Blog - EDUCATE - INSPIRE - TRANSFORM
My whole life I have been thankful for everything, but I am especially thankful to have been given the opportunity to be in the pioneer class at Gashora Girls Academy of Science and Technology (GGAST). GGAST made me the person I am today - strong, intelligent, ambitious, imaginative, and a committed young woman.
In celebration of International Women's Day, we are thrilled to be launching our blog. We hope that this will serve as a platform to amplify the voices around the world advocating for girls education and women's empowerment. In addition, we are enthusiastic about having this new channel to inform our stakeholders about the extraordinary accomplishments and achievements of our students at GGAST as well as our Alumnae.
To kick things off, we are delighted to have Sarah Henry write our first post commemorating International Women's Day. As the Program Director for Gender Equality at Stanford University School of Medicine, Sarah has dedicated her career to gender equality, her work has been both domestic and international with a focus maternal, newborn, and child health.
