Miller Center's Commitment to Women Rising
Women and girls represent the majority of the world’s poor and have fewer paths out of poverty. Miller Center believes that investing in women and girls is the best way to eliminate poverty for everyone. Miller Center will leverage Silicon Valley mentors to empower sub-Saharan African social enterprises – and by extension their communities – with market-aligned skills training, economic development, and better maternal and child health outcomes.
