Girls in economically disadvantaged families don’t have access to the equipment, resources and services that girls from better off families have. We are giving scholarship recipients computers, internet access, money for other equipment and access to tutoring and mentoring.
When you educate a girl you break the vicious cycle of poverty. Girls supported with equipment, money
for resources and tutoring and coaching will be much more likely to complete high school and undertake
further education after school. A girl will earn up to 25% more income for each year of additional
education. She is more likely to invest in her children's education and wellbeing and support their
studies. The education and success of girls will lead to a more prosperous and responsible society.
It will also stimulate economic growth. The education can raise families out of poverty, and accelerate economic development. It has a multiplier effect like no other strategy.
