Educating girls is the most important and effective long-term investment in the developing world today. Education is the only way to ensure girls escape societal cruelties such as female genital mutilation and become equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to earn a living and care for their families. Women spend more money on their children's school fees and healthcare than men do, guaranteeing that your investment in one girl will be passed on generation after generation. All of the students pictured below have been hand selected as incredibly promising and intelligent students capable of doing great things with their lives but lacking the financial means to attend high school. Your generous sponsorship will allow them to break the cruel cycle of poverty and break free from the constraints traditionally imposed on young women and will allow them to continue with their education and attain their goals.
“My story – of a girl struggling to maintain her grip on education – is the story of millions of girls around the world. So many of my friends in my rural village lost that grip due to poverty, and their lives are so drastically different from mine today because of one thing: an education.”
-– Brinner Malanga, Teacher
