Education can close the gap
Access to education and technology must become a global, fundamental right for girls and women. Intel technology-based programs in education and digital literacy are empowering women around the world, and the impact is clear:
- They gain the skills to become more self-confident and productive.
- They access and generate new sources of prosperity, and invest them in the health, education, and well-being of their families and communities.
- They reach out to help others move forward, initiating and escalating cycles of empowerment.
- Employment and entrepreneurship increase significantly.
- Poverty decreases, GDP increases, and positive global change results.
Me to We is about transforming people into world changers, one action and one experience at a time. It’s about taking the best practices of business and the compassion of charity and applying them to better ourselves, our communities and the world.
And it all starts with making better choices.
Me to We provides people with better choices for a better world, including socially conscious and environmentally friendly clothes and accessories, as well as life-changing international volunteer trips, leadership training programs and materials, an inspirational speakers’ bureau, and books that address issues of positive social change.
Me to We is designed to help support the work of our charitable partner Free The Children. Half of its annual profits on an annual basis are given to Free The Children with the other half reinvested to sustain the growth of the enterprise. Through Me to We, our dream is to bring Free The Children’s already low administrative rate down to zero, meaning 100% of all donations to Free The Children will go directly to projects.
Me to We measures the bottom line, not by dollars earned, but by number of lives we change, our contributions to support our charitable partner, and the positive social and environmental impact we make.
