International Women's Day 2024
 
Today, we're honored to celebrate just a few of the remarkable women who Pearl Jam have the honor to know and support. 

Education For All Morocco

In some of the most remote villages of the High Atlas region of Morocco, teenage girls are absent from school due to poverty, living far away from schools, and not having access to transport. This in turn leads to generations of illiterate women and girls, locked into early marriage and motherhood, unable to realize their potential in life. Since 2007, Education For All Morocco has been building and running girl-only boarding houses close to local schools, offering a supportive, well-resourced learning environment for girls to thrive in their education and life. Following the earthquake on September 8th, 2023, all 6 of Education for All's boarding homes were significantly damaged. Remarkably, amidst this devastation, EFA has continued operations in rented homes as they begin the rebuilding process. EFA's housemothers, Latifa, Khadija, and Mina work tirelessly to ensure the girls are cared for and feel inspired to complete their education and go for their dreams.

Di'Orr Greenwood



 

Di'orr Greenwood is an extraordinary multidisciplinary artist, skateboard instructress, and proud member of the Navajo Nation. Di'orr is a skilled woodworker who creates skateboards that incorporate traditional Navajo symbols and motifs. Last year, Di'orr was featured on the US forever stamp, showcasing one of her beautiful self-decorated boards. She is also a competitive skater and instructor who inspires youth in her community through her skating and art. Last summer, Jeff's nonprofit, Montana Pool Service, was honored to host Di'Orr at the opening ceremony of their park in Standing Rock.
