We are living in a time where many women around the world are enjoying more opportunities than they ever have before. From women like the educated and beautiful First Lady Michelle Obama to mega pop star Beyonce and the inspiring education activist and Nobel Prize nominee Malala Yousafzai, many women are getting the chance to live their dreams and break down important barriers. One of the exciting things about the progress that women from a wide variety of backgrounds are making is knowing that it will have a huge impact on making things better for women and girls in the future. This will mean that young women will have an even greater ability to dream in the future than they do today.
The First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama has recognized that in order for girls to grow into women with bright futures they must have access to the opportunity to become educated. Last year the First Lady and President Barack Obama launched a pro-education campaign known as Let Girls Learn. The Let Girls Learn campaign seeks to promote women’s empowerment by ensuring that the educational needs of the estimated 62 million girls who are not enrolled school are met. According to the campaign, education is incredibly vital to the wellbeing of girls around the world. The campaign posits that when girls are not educated they can fall victim to life-altering circumstances such as early marriage and HIV/AIDS. They can also have a much harder time getting access to avenues for economic advancement.
As campaigns like the American First Lady’s Let Girls Learn initiative show, it is vital for girls to have access to educational opportunities. QNET believes that it is not only important for girls to have educational opportunities but that it is crucial for them to have employment opportunities to look forward to when they complete their educations. QNET seeks to be a provider of such employment opportunities by offering women in a large number of countries the chance to own their own businesses. QNET believes that promoting female entrepreneurship is a vital part of promoting women’s empowerment. In an article published on the website Gulf News 24/7, QNET Regional General Manager Khaled Diab cited the fact that nearly three-quarters of the people employed in the direct selling business are women. QNET offers its female employees the chance to become business owners and the chance to sell products that improve the lives of female consumers.
