Mary Scott from Winnipeg, Manitoba, volunteers for the Winnipeg Chapter of the Canadian National Committee for UN Women. UN Women holds fundraisers and awareness campaigns to promote the role of women in development. Actively involved in many women’s groups, Mary believes that women and girls are the key to effective international development, because if girls are educated then they are able to work and lift their families and communities out of poverty. Her hope for the future is a greater investment in women and girls, which, Mary says, will have positive results for all.
