TEDxMacquarieUniversity - Chantelle Baxter - Educating and Empowering Women

Chantelle wants to see a world where women and girls are creating and leading change in their communities. To fulfill on this vision, Chantelle co-founded One Girl, a non-profit organisation that works in one of the worst places in the world to be born a woman: Sierra Leone, West Africa. Chantelle and the One Girl team provide education scholarships to highly vulnerable girls who are at risk of being forced into child marriage. They've also launched a social enterprise called LaunchPad that delivers affordable eco-friendly sanitary pads to women and girls living in rural areas. Who knew a sanitary pad could change the world? Chantelle is a proud fellow of Melbourne's School for Social Entrepreneurs and has been selected as one of Australia's "Brightest Young Minds".About TEDx, x = independently organized eventIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
