Educating Girls for a Better World

Our mission: To promote closing the gap in education and to empower underprivileged girls with the knowledge and the skills necessary to create a better life for themselves, their families and the community around them.

The education of women is one of the most valuable investments we can make not only in the present moment, but for the future. Study after study has shown that when you educate a girl, you educate and economically empower the next generation.

EWT Fund is a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization that was founded by Turkish American women living in Houston with the objectives to:

  • Provide girls and young women in Turkey with access to education and opportunity
  • Demonstrate gratitude to the education and the privilege they have had, and share this with others in the hopes that it will create a collective effort to give back
  • Leverage the collective resources, passion, and influence of individuals who believe in the transformative effect women's education can have on economic and social equality
