Scholars pass grade-level exams

We are very proud of our Senegal scholars, all of whom passed their recent end-of-year exams and moved on to the next grade-level! Many Senegalese girls who do get a chance to enroll in school often drop out prematurely because they found their grade-level exams too difficult, their families run out of funds to pay their school fees, they become sick with a preventable illness such as food poisoning or malaria, or they become engaged to marry and to start a family. The success of our scholars was enabled by support programs such as our after-school tutoring and mentoring program and our health education program, which have helped address barriers that keep girls from staying and doing well in school.

We also found a marked increase in the number of resident girls attending school after a specific community participates in one of our girls’ education awareness programs. Thank you for your support!
