Girls Education Collaborative (GEC) works in rural areas in developing countries to support community-driven initiatives where girls education is at the core. The organization is a ‘spin off’ of a project at the University of Buffalo called The Buffalo Tanzania Education Project. Anne shares, “GEC had an amazing first year – so many people and organizations are eager to help girls in these communities transcend their current circumstances.”
