Our History
Our Inspiration

​       Together to Empower is a non-profit organization founded by 3 high school students with a dream to empower young girls around the world. In Summer 2015, Sophia Qin, Michelle Qin, and Mary Lin watched a video called "Half the Sky", located to the right. The video inspired them that age is not a limit to the changes everyone can create in society.
       In many countries, girls face numerous barriers, such as lack of services and social neglect, that withhold them from attaining education and reaching full potential. But, with teamwork and determination, we will obtain social equality. We hope to inspire young girls and boys to pursue their dreams with no fear by advocating for open access to education in underdeveloped areas.
       As our society continues to rapidly grow, it is of great importance we recognize that girls have the potential to change the world, just as much as boys do. Our world will only get stronger with girls and boys in the lead together. Stand with us in our mission by learning more about our team, projects, and how you can get involved.
