Rotary/US Global Strategy to Empower Adolescent Girls
The US Global Strategy to Empower Adolescent Girls was launched in Mar 2016 by U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry. The goal of U.S. efforts under this strategy is to ensure adolescent girls are educated, healthy, economically and socially empowered, and free from violence and discrimination, thereby promoting global development, security, and prosperity. To implement the strategy, organizations like Rotary have the opportunity to partner up and on Sep 22nd 2016 RCNY entered into partnership with UN Women and the RCNY Foundation to increase empowerment and education for adolescent girls and young women in Sierra Leone and other developing countries, in the context of poverty eradication and the achievement of gender equality. The partnership is entitled "A.G.R.E.E." (Adolescent Girls Renew Educate Empower)
