Global Campaign for Women's & Girls' Education 

On 11 May, Greenlightforgirls.org and Serve the City partnered with two after-school programs, Caria and Epée, in the Marolles area of Brussels, Belgium to highlight the importance of education for girls and women.  Ellen Geerts, from the ESERO project of the European Space Agency, Erin Anzelmo and Cheryl Miller led two fun science activities for a group of 25 girls, and a few exceptional boys, who enjoyed the afternoon thoroughly.  Children from the after-school program "Caria" also read moving testimonials from girls and women whose lives have been changed by gaining access to basic education.  The activity was part of the week-long Global Campaign for Education for Girls and Women.
