This is a powerful statement by our good friend Graca Machel. Graca is the widow of Nelson Mandela, and is a true leader in the fight against poverty, hunger and oppression in Southern Africa.

Educating girls and young women is a critical component in breaking the cycle of poverty. Graca is a strong supporter of Stop Hunger Now South Africa, and has organized and participated in several meal packaging events in South Africa and Mozambique.
