A crash course in changing the world.
Pick any of the 100 Global Giving projects designed to provide equal education and economic opportunity to women -- ideally, the same project you plan to ACT to help this week.
Think about how the lives of girls and women empowered by this very project will change over the next decade.
Some changes will come directly from their experience with this social venture. Other changes may come from major political, legal, technological, or social advances in their village, country, or region of the world.
Picture how all these changes might come together and tell us about a future where the girls and women you supported in 2010 are significantly more empowered than they are today. What is it like, and how did it come to pass?
