Gender Equality

HELP US EMPOWER WOMEN AND GIRLS

Women and girls are discriminated against in almost all countries on Earth, although it is known that empowering women and girls as equal partners with men and boys could remove poverty. Women and girls tend to have fewer and restricted access to opportunities than men and boys. Women and girls continue to suffer discrimination and violence in every part of the world. More than 500million Women and girls have less access to education and are without basic literacy skills.

Gender-based discrimination is noted as violations of human rights; however more women continue to experience assault, threat or physical, verbal or digital attack than men and boys. In the poorest communities of our world, women and girls are treated as the sole property of men and boys and often suffer discrimination, exploitation and violence. RESCUEMISSION are focused on supporting women and girls to enjoy equal opportunities, choices, capabilities, power and knowledge as equal citizens with men and boys. We’re focused on educating girls and boys, women and men about the despicable nature of gender inequality and equip them with the knowledge, values, attitudes and skills to tackle gender differences as a starting point of achieving gender equality for all. RESCUEMISSION are determined to empower and improve women and girls social, economic and political status in at least 150 countries on Earth. Let’s Do It together.

Promoting Girls’ Education

Promoting quality education for girls is known to have wide-ranging benefits on communities and nations, however, in many parts of the world girls are the first to be denied access to education. Sadly, two-thirds out of the 263 million children who are still out of school are girls. In many parts of the world, Education is not freely available to everyone. In sub-Saharan Africa, more than 52 million girls do not have primary and lower secondary school education. Girls are the first to drop out of school, which makes them highly vulnerable to early marriage, early pregnancy and HIV/AIDS.

Yet when given access to education, the rates of child marriage amongst girls reduces drastically resulting in higher prospects for healthier families, improved wages and better jobs for women who are empowered to become community and government leaders.

Poverty is the greatest barrier to accessing an education – overcoming this barrier by investing in girls and women is a proven way to improve the health and wealth of entire nations. With access to education women can break out of poverty and be empowered to start businesses, get employment, become politician and make the world a better place for everyone.

RESCUEMISSION work across 27 countries to ensure that children receive the quality education that is their right. In countries where girls are denied an education through risk of violence or child marriage, we set up girls’ clubs and school committees so that girls can demand their right to education, free from abuse. RESCUEMISSION are working with local and national governments, civil societies, teachers, parents, and children to make publicly-funded education available to all children and making make sure children have essentials like desks, books, food, drinking water and toilets at school.

Empowering Women in Politics

It is an established fact that globally, women have less political representation than men. Almost 65% of countries around the world, have never had a female head of government or state for at least one year in the past half-century, including the United States. Women representation in political positions compared to men is alarmingly disproportionate. Empowering women to achieve political or leadership positions, will help serve the interests and values of females in society especially in the most disadvantaged societies.

In almost all societies and communities women tend to find it hard to achieve economic success and move up the socioeconomic scale. Women work for long hours and often receive less pay than men or are often unpaid. In many countries, females do not have the right to own land, earn an income and progress their careers due to gender discrimination. RESCUEMISSION is working in 48 countries where women are oppressed the most to empower women and achieve gender equality. Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. Unfortunately, at the current time,

Supporting Women’s Entrepreneurship

RESCUEMISSION supporting jobs and entrepreneurship opportunities to encourage civil participation, self-dependence and foster permanent solutions for generating sustainable prosperity for women. Women Marginalised groups can be particularly vulnerable from being excluded from these opportunities in the private sector. The proportion of small and medium-sized companies run by women is increasing. Yet there is greater potential still: there are more women with great entrepreneurial ideas who need the support to help their businesses succeed. If women set up businesses at the same rate as men, the UK would have an additional one million entrepreneurs.

The power and influence of the business entrepreneurship creates an opportunity to make real and immediate changes that will increase the odds for women entrepreneurs as equal partners with men entrepreneurs. With your help, we can improve access to financial and human capital for women and help facilitate connections by increasing access to local and global networks and markets. We seek to support women’s entrepreneurial growth in the face of changing technology so they can flourish and competent well with male entrepreneurs.
