Joanna Riley, CEO and co-founder of Censia Talent Intelligence, has a deep personal connection with this mission. "I am excited to work with So They Can to open the floodgates to education so that every child has the opportunity to step foot inside the classroom, regardless of their identity, upbringing or the hardship that they have been born into. Censia exists to unleash the full potential in every single individual to contribute to the global economy, and I strongly believe that our partnership with So They Can is the most effective way to create greater prosperity for these children and families."

"Education is key to reducing poverty, improving equity, saving the planet and ensuring we have enough human capital to advance our world. We are building our ambassador program in the US which will have a dramatic increase on the number of girls we will put through school every year in Africa." said Monica Bua.

"Right now 258 million children are left without access to education. Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest rates of education exclusion, with over one-fifth of children between the ages of about 6 and 11 not attending school." says So They Can co-founder Cassandra Treadwell. "We look forward to scaling our impact with the support of Joanna Riley, Monica Bua and the rest of their committed team.
