Girls in the classroom learning to read via non-profite room to read literacy program

Keeping girls in school so they can reach their potential

The single best approach to improving the status of women in emerging economies is through education. Studies have shown that educated women are more likely to have smaller and healthier families, and higher wages. They are also more likely to marry later and educate their own children — ending the cycle of illiteracy in one generation.

Yet, girls are disadvantaged when it comes to education. Cultural bias, gender discrimination and safety concerns discourage girls from learning, and these pressures become more pronounced when girls reach secondary school.

How we deliver our girl’s education program

Material support

For some families, the cost of a school uniform or safe transportation is prohibitive to sending their daughters to school. We provide need-based material support for school costs such as tuition fees, uniforms and exam preparation services so parents don’t have to make the choice between putting food on the table and investing in education.

Mentorship icon

Mentorships

Local women are hired as mentors and work with girls and their families to ensure that girls stay in school, participate in life skills activities, and navigate the challenges of adolescence with the ability and confidence to make their own life choices and voice their opinion.
