Although I obviously agree with the good intentions behind this bill (i.e. to empower women and girls through education), I don't believe that foreign aid is the way to accomplish that. Foreign aid usually doesn't reach the poor people for whom it is intended (e.g. women and girls) and instead is siphoned off by corrupt bureaucrats in foreign governments decreasing the actual amount that reaches to intended recipients. We should instead be promoting polices to encourage foreign governments to wean themselves off international aid by financing their development activités through other means.
