ConnectEd helps girls become strong, prepared womenPhoto by ConnectEd.

A ConnectEd China student participates in an occupation awareness class, to develop the skills Estelle descripes to help her get ahead. Since its inception, ConnectEd has reached 17,866 youth, 61% of which are girls.

“Common to all of us implementing ConnectEd is the belief that helping disadvantaged youth secure decent work and get ahead, is not just about teaching specific technical work skills or about getting these youth through school. It’s about helping these youth to develop skills like decision-making, problem solving, communication skills, team work, planning, self-confidence, self-awareness, and leadership.”
– Estelle Day, ConnectEd Program Director
