Birds Born In A Cage Think Flying Is An Illness

God Bless Non-Believers
They Teach The Dreamers How To Fly
Love And Hate Fuel The Fire Inside Their Eyes.
Fear Not What You Do Not Know, Find The Courage To Discover It.
Nothing Will Bring You Peace Until You Fulfill The Calling In Your Heart.

  • fastcompany: A new film called Girl Rising shows how education affects nine girls from nine countries—with some help from famous voices like Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, and Anne Hathaway.

    Investing in girls is said to have the best returns, dollar for dollar, of anything we can do in low-income locations.

    Every extra year of schooling for girls leads to:

    • Increased incomes by 10% to 25%.
    • rise in national wealth.
    • Lower rates of child mortality and HIV/AIDS.
    • Better educated future generations. 

    "We can overcome many challenges that we’re trying to address in global development when girls are safe, educated, healthy, and empowered," says Girl Rising executive producer Holly Gordon. ”It’s the best investment you can make if you’re trying to make long-term strategic change in global development,”
