The initiative is helping to close the gap in access to education, raise academic standards, provide education to women, and break the cycle of poverty

University students serve their community by being mentors and positive role models for younger generations of students and as valuable academic resources to rural communities.
• Close the gap in access to education, raise academic standards, provide education to women, and break the cycle of poverty by using education as weapon to fight poverty.
• Involving more females as leaders in their communities.
