Target: George W. Bush Institute
Goal: Applaud the George W. Bush Institute for working hand in hand with women to build their success
The George W. Bush Institute has been faithfully working alongside women in different areas of the world to improve their lives significantly. They created the women’s initiative program, which will initially focus on women in North Africa and the Middle East and expand across the world. Their first two classes of Fellows consisted of Egyptian women. They helped fellows develop exchange expertise, learn to advocate for social stability, and develop strong leadership skills. They have produced many success stories such as Amany Eid who serves as Women and family Programs Manager for the largest nonprofit organization in Egypt.
The Bush Institute also has an Afghan Women’s Project that focuses on empowering Afghan women by working with both the United States and Afghanistan governments. The project spotlights the hardships and successes of Afghan women by telling their personal stories. The Bush Institute also held the 2013 African First Ladies Summit, “Investing in Women: Strengthening Africa.” The summit, which brought together former First Lady Laura Bush and First Lady Michelle Obama, was devoted to advancement in women’s economic empowerment across Africa. It also gathered many of the wives of prominent political figures in Africa to get the message across that First Ladies have a great influence on change.
The Bush Institute also focuses on many other important worldly issues such as economic growth, education reform, and many other topics. By signing this petition you are commending the work of the Bush family and the George W. Bush Institute in helping, empowering, and strengthening women everywhere.
