Our organization draws inspiration from Margaret McNamara, and her vision of education and gender equality. Margaret used her influence as wife of Robert McNamara, the World Bank’s fifth President, to advocate for the recognition and inclusion of these critical elements of development programs.
Before her death, she was awarded the highest civilian distinction in the United States, the Medal of Honor, in recognition of her important contributions.
