Short Description: 
Beatrice Achieng Nas on girls education in Uganda
Tune in for a conversation with Beatrice Achieng Nas about the importance of girl's education and her efforts to empower girls in rural Uganda.

Beatrice Achieng Nas is the founder of Pearl Community Empowerment Foundation, PCE. As a young girl, Beatrice struggled going to school despite her mother's efforts to raise funds. An American family from Kentucky sponsored and educated her from High School to the University. This opportunity became a turning point. She is now dedicated to supporting her community.

Beatrice believes "she is an education and empowerment global voice for the grassroots communities in Africa, especially the women, girls and children. Her vision is to work with men and women locally and internationally in empowering women and girls. Beatrice believes that everybody has the potential to live a better life."
