Our Social Promise
Education is a human right, protected under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It is crucial to ensure that nearly four billion girls and women around the world have the same chances to receive an education as boys and men. The systematic exclusion of girls and women from school and the labor force translates into a less educated workforce, inefficient allocation of labor, lost productivity and consequently diminished progress in economic development.
One of the most effective ways to fight poverty and bolster disadvantaged communities is through investing in girls’ education. Schooling is a precursor for women and girls to stand up to the injustices they face and can help foster economic growth and stability. Studies show that increasing the number of girls benefitting from education has a positive effect on a country’s per capital economic growth.
Simplifi will fund one year of education for a girl in a disadvantaged country for every funded home loan . We will cover the cost of sending a student to school for a year (which includes tuition, uniforms, supplies and other needs). We believe that education has the power to alter the lives of disadvantaged girls and women by giving them the skills to succeed.
