Why Our Model Works


6,200 life-changing scholarships awarded to hard-to-reach girls

We find the girls who have fallen through the cracks of other initiatives and provide them with primary school fees, supplies, tutoring, and more to break down the tough social, economic, and cultural barriers that keep them from going to school.


99% of our scholars stayed in school and had fewer health-related absences over the last two years

We identify girls who are most at risk of dropping out and provide them with secondary school scholarships and support resources to empower them to finish their education, live up to their limitless potential, and decide their own futures.


15,000 community members now believe in gender equality

We partner with dynamic local organizations to engage entire communities on the grassroots level by having workshops, adult literacy classes, and after-school clubs for girls and boys.
