With education, the world opens for a Sierra Leone girl.
You can give the most rural girl from a family living on less than $2 a day the gift of education – and change her world.
She’ll marry later and avoid early pregnancy. When ready, she’ll have fewer, healthier children and send them to school with the higher earning power her education brings. She may start a business or become a community leader – or go on to lead her country. The circle of positive impact from education only keeps growing.
It can start with only $30 for a secondary school scholarship that helps a girl complete high school.
$50 pays a local teacher’s monthly stipend for teaching after-school classes that prepare 9th and 12th graders for their national exams – the entry to senior high and higher education.
$100 pays annual tuition for a student to attend vocational school and advance to a wage-paying job.
$375 pays annual tuition for a college scholarship at the University of Sierra Leone.
This Giving Tuesday, change a Sierra Leone girl’s life. Give her the gift of education. And you’ll feel great!
