Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ashley Shuyler is the founder of AfricAid, a nonprofit organization that supports girls' education in Africa in order to provide young women with the opportunity to transform their own lives and the futures of their communities. Since its inception in 2001, AfricAid has raised nearly $1,000,000 and supported thousands of Tanzanian students in their educational and professional goals. Shuyler was born in 1985 and grew up in Houston, Texas and Golden, Colorado. Her parents are Nina and Richard Shuyler. During a trip to Tanzania in 1996, Shuyler learned that only a small fraction of girls in Tanzania are able to obtain an education beyond the primary school level. In response to that experience, she founded AfricAid. As a student at Colorado Academy in Denver at the time, Shuyler came to believe that education is the most crucial component of any long-term solution to the many challenges facing Africa, particularly in the areas of poverty, health and inequality. After high school, Shuyler attended Harvard University, where she continued to explore issues of international development in the third world.show more
