Summary

Forty-five percent of girls in Southeast Turkey cannot read or write. The goal of this project is to educate 14 girls in high school before 2014. Can we do it?

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Cultural norms and financial disparity leave young girls on the sidelines. Parents do not prioritize a girl's education as it is seen as an added expense with no return.

How will this project solve this problem?

As public schooling in Turkey is free, the scholarships are stipends provided to families to pay for lunches, books and supplies. There is then no cost to sending their girls to school during the day. Additionally, through our partner Cagdas Yasami Destekleme Dernegi (CYDD) in Turkey we will educate families into understanding the long term impact of allowing their daughters to study.

Potential Long Term Impact

The long term impact of girls' education is endless. Once a girl is educated, she is 50% less likely to marry before she is 18. Then, with her schooling will be able to find a job. And once she is financially independent, she can support her family through her career. She will grow to raise independent, educated girls and this has the potential to shape an entire culture.
