Maybe you're wondering what 2 + 1 means for Africa ELI. Here's the deal-- we know you're busy people. We know you've got careers, families, church groups, classes, car payments, and about a thousand other commitments that keep your schedule and your mind on-the-go. So we're asking that you give Africa ELI 3 days a week-- 3 lunch breaks, 3 coffee dates, or 3 stop-bys as you check your Facebook page. We know that your brain has already left the office building by Friday afternoon and is focused on entering again on Mondays. We want your attention on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays. 2 updates a week (including stories, student profiles, info from guest bloggers, and even book recommendations) on Tuesdays and Thursdays + 1 photo of the week, featured on Wednesdays. 2 + 1 : it's as simple as that.
We hope this blog page inspires, educates, and motivates you. We anticipate that you will become as passionate as we are about educating the girls of South Sudan so that their leadership can shape the future of the new nation. Let women's empowerment become a priority for you, globally and locally. In fact, we know many of you are already at that point, and we thank you for your dedication.
Your contributions (time, word-of-mouth, financial) are what makes Africa ELI possible-- you are part of the solution for South Sudan. So today's blog launch is dedicated to celebrating the girls of South Sudan, and to celebrating your part in their success.
