For a long time there has been a persistent narrative of non profits, and foreign aid having superficial outcomes. Billions of dollars and years of time are given but convolution and bureaucracy often leads to a poverty trap. Poverty exists because of the institutions in place that extract not only the countries wealth but its citizens spirit. GURLS Inc was not designed for hand outs, it was designed for opportunity. We want to fight poverty, disease, corruption not just through education, but by creating a complete metamorphosis of the institutions and societies that create traps. In the conference we want to discuss new concepts of social engineering, create partnerships with organizations, and focus on giving a modern twist on the story of aid.
GURLS INC is the idea that all children need an education to flourish. Through the wars, political conflict, resource deficiencies, human ingenuity continues to over come to create powerful futures. We are note a "safe" non profit, we create change and refuse to allow ourselves to stand still. Innovation through education is our motto because we want to inspire a lasting physical change in the world.
We started this organization not to be afraid , to fight oppression that screams "education is and evil" while slaughtering futures. We believe peace happens through learning, that ignorance festers hate, and that change comes from uniting.
We need to ask ourselves if children are our future why are we failing them? For what are humans deprived of knowledge?
