In honor of visionary women who have dedicated themselves to the betterment of lives through education
Cle de Peau Beaute proudly announces the Power of Radiance Program, a multi-year philanthropic commitment that honors inspirational women from around the world whose advocacy for women and girls’ education has led to positive long-term impact on lives. The Program will select an Award Recipient annually who will receive a grant that can be donated to a cause of her choice, in support of educational initiatives for women and girls. Through this endeavor, Cle de Peau Beaute seeks to empower women and children through the gift of knowledge and learning, and make a tangible difference by igniting radiance within the world.
The inaugural event to launch the Power of Radiance was hosted by Cle de Peau Beaute’s Global Ambassador Felicity Jones and the program’s first award recipient Muzoon Almellehan, education activist and the first person with refugee status to be appointed as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Lending their support to the initiative were program contributors, Cindi Leive, Naomi Kawase and Belinda Lee, who shared their experiences through a live panel discussion with Muzoon Almellehan, together delivering an empowering message on each person’s responsibility to affect positive change.
Education is the single most potent equalizer of opportunity. It provides children with a ladder out of poverty and a path to a stable and promising future. Yet, today more than 130 million girls* all around the world are missing out on school.
Girls’ education is a strategic development priority. Better educated women tend to be healthier, participate more in the formal labor market, earn higher incomes, have fewer children, marry at a later age and should they choose to become mothers, enable better health care and education for their children. All these factors combined can help lift households, communities, and nations out of poverty.
