Dr. Goodall Promotes Global Education in Taiwan
During a recent stop in Taiwan, Dr. Goodall read to a young girl named Nadine. As she tours the world, Dr. Goodall constantly encourages young people to take action to improve this planet we call home. The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) knows this cannot happen without education based on the Institute's experience working with the world's children, particularly young women in Africa. In Tanzania, for example, JGI actively promotes girls' education because it has found that improving literacy rates among women improves the well-being of the communities in which they live.
This photo honors the recent United Nations (UN) education campaign led by UN Special Envoy for Global Education Gordon Brown. The campaign's mission is "to deliver on the world’s promise to ensure that no child is denied the right to go to school and learn by 2015."
