The Importance of Educating Women
For this Catalyst Conference, I chose to make a website that would educate people on the problem surrounding us concerning the lack of women’s education in developing countries. This website informs, encourages, informs, and takes action on the issue at hand. Many women in the developing world Do not have the same opportunities to be educated and lead a better life. It is important to aid in their pursuit of knowledge to allow them to have the same privileges as we do.
My mother is president of an organization, DIL (Developments in Literacy), that aids young girls in their journey of education in Pakistan by fundraising to built schools and hire teachers. She inspired me to do this project and further this cause.
To Start, I created a graphic to depict the countries with the lowest literacy rates for women
At first, I wanted to build my site on this graphic however this later changed into my current layout.
This page includes an introduction to the website and a graphic depicting countries with the lowest literacy rates.
For this graphic (Below) I started with a basic graphic of the map of the world and added tags to ten of the countries with the lowest literacy rates for women. I believe this graphic will help to give viewers a depiction of the real people they would be helping by contributing to this cause.
