The Legacy Vision

The Legacy Vision

"No development strategy is better than one that involves women as central players. It has immediate benefits for nutrition, health, savings, and reinvestment at the family, community, and ultimately, country level. In other words, educating girls is a social development policy that works. A long-term investment yields an exceptionally high return. We need those with power to change things, to come together in an alliance for girls' education: governments, voluntary progressive groups, and above all, local communities, schools, and families" Kofi Annan, UN Secretary General, World Education Forum, 2000.

Legacy's vision is inspired by these words by Kofi Annan.

A vision of girls and women understanding their rights and responsibilities and playing their central role in national development.
