We believe that young women deserve the opportunity to lead positive change in their communities. Young women in Rwanda have been identified as a group that has not been given sufficient opportunities for secondary education. Our mission is to provide scholarships in order to empower deserving young girls to become leaders in their communities. Presently we support ten young women in the Rwinkwavu Sector of Rwanda. We pay school fees, boarding fees, uniforms, health products and transportation to and from their villages to their schools. We also support their expenses at leadership and entrepreneurial camps where they learn skills that will be essential in their lives after graduation from high school.
When we have surplus funds, we help with the salary of the social worker who is instrumental in supporting these scholars and their families. In years to come, we hope to extend our activities for these girls beyond these two initiatives.
You can give right now to empower Rwandan girls to break the cycle of poverty. All it takes to send a girl in Rwanda to secondary school for one year is $500 – that’s just $1.37 a day to help a young girl rewrite her future out of poverty .
