1 mot = 1 leçon

Have you ever considered what it would be like to be unable to read a text from a friend, a road sign, or even a prescription? In Senegal this is the reality for many.

Millions of girls are forced out of education before they reach puberty, unable to read or write. Without these skills, they are trapped in a cycle of poverty. A cycle which can affect their families for generations.

Providing education is the single biggest opportunity to empower girls, and help lift communities in the developing world out of poverty. That's why, for the 3rd year running, Always & UNESCO have teamed-up, and with the help of our French consumers are changing Senegalese girls' lives forever, one lesson at a time.

How are they doing this? Through one simple action:

1 mot = 1 leçon

All you need to do is visit http://www.always.fr/reecrire-des-avenirs, select the word you want to donate, share it across your favourite social media channels, and Always & UNESCO will turn that donation into a lesson. You can also find us on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/#!/alwaysfrance?fref=ts
