Inspiring Darfur Girls to Achieve

Women's Centers and Education Scholarships

As a first step toward RI’s “Scholarships Inspiring Darfur Girls to Achieve” initiative, RI is working with donors from Global Giving and private foundations to rehabilitate two and construct two new women’s centers. The Darfur Women’s Centers will serve as female-friendly community spaces in Kabkabiya, a remote village in North Darfur. The durable centers will host continuing education programs for women and girls, and will serve as a resource for a girls mentoring program – a mentoring network of women that offer “stay in school” and extracurricular support for secondary education that can counteract the hurdles girls currently face attending school. Through participation in the community centers, RI will select recipients of scholarships to provide girls who are forced to stop going to school with the funds and emotional coaching they need to resume their education. The new centers are strategically located to ensure that communities of internally displaced persons and host communities, have equitable access to the services provided.
