People to help light the way

Malala Yousafzai is known as an advocate for the rights of girls and women, and her work to ensure access to education has inspired millions around the world.  But before she was on the global stage, she worked tirelessly in her hometown in Pakistan.  She advocated tirelessly and because of her, young women are able to attend school that otherwise wouldn’t be able to.

/rolemodels is a way for people to lead the way in their own hometown, their own neighborhood.  Connecting, organizing and supporting efforts to improve education, parks / green space, and public policy, these are all done by the unsung heroes of our local community.  /rolemodels can help recognize them and give future leaders inspiration for their own work.

We are building the local web and sharing a new way to use it each day.
