Secondary School for Mozambican Girls



This project give young girls in rural Mozambique scholarships for the 8th, 9th, and 10th grades, with after-school and social worker support, giving them a new opportunity: to gain economic freedom.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Less than 1 out of every 1000 rural girls graduates high school in Mozambique. The program gives scholarships, school materials and support given in a boarding school environment annexed to the Magude High school, where the girls, all between 13 and 17 years, enter High School.

How will this project solve this problem?

Addressing the complex reasons girls leave school, scholarships counter poverty, social workers provide support, protection against sexual abuse, and accountability, and after-school programs give girls space to study away from pressures at home.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project has so far benefited 60 girls. Graduating the 10th grade qualifies for a range of professions, including teaching and civil service, allowing the girls and their families an escape from subsistence agriculture by gaining economic freedom. Currently we have 11 girls attending school through our scholarship.
