New Video Campaign Supports Girls Education in Asia
December 15, 2010
Don’t tell her she can’t be a doctor, a scientist, a journalist, a pilot, an urban planner, or a stock broker. Tell her she can. So says a stunning new video produced by The Asia Foundation. Watch it right now on our Facebook page. For every “like” the video gets on Facebook through the end of 2010, (up to $15,000) the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ will donate $1 to our efforts to educate girls in Asia.
If you’re in New York’s Times Square neighborhood, look up at the CBS Superscreen on 42nd Street, which was generously donated to The Asia Foundation to screen our video every hour during the holiday season, until midnight December 31.
Since 1954, The Asia Foundation has been committed to girls’ education as the single most effective way to empower girls and women.
