“We are so thrilled Shangri-La is supporting our cause to end gender inequality and raise funds to educate bright girls living in extreme poverty,” said Lotte Davis, CEO and founder of One Girl Can.

Davis, born in South Africa, grew aware of the lack of opportunities for women. After she made this realization, she decided to make a difference and founded One Girl Can in 2008. Now, Davis uses her holistic business model to impact gender inequality in underdeveloped countries like Kenya.

The charity’s business model, “We Build. We Educate. We Mentor,” focuses to empower girls through confidence and independence. Additionally, the model helps them take control of their lives and impact positive change in their communities.

“If we are ever going to truly move the needle on gender imbalance, we will need to help lift up women in underdeveloped countries, as well as in our own,” said Davis.
