During a trip to Cambodia, Allison Grenney, a 23 year-old student from Sedalia, CO, noticed a sharp discrepancy between the demeanor of most local youth and that of one particular young boy who struck her as more handsome and sophisticated than his friends. She interrogated his father who only replied: “well, my wife is educated”. Right there and then, the power of female education, a given only in the West and in recent time, struck Allison far more than it ever did before. From this day on, nothing seemed to matter more to her than finding ways to help foster girls’ education in developing countries. As a first venture, she started “EduKate”, a company that raises money by selling made-in-USA (by women) tote bags and I-phone cases and donates a fair share of its profit to organizations that provide education and mentoring for girls in Cambodia, Tanzania and Guatemala.
