Provide a Scholarship to One Afghan Girl

Summary

This microproject will give a scholarship to one needy Afghan girl/young woman. It will contribute to the cost of tuition, books, school uniforms (not for university), stationary supplies and transport so that the girl can attend a private high school or university. Without this scholarship, the girl would be unable to attend a school or university and receive a high quality education.

Challenge

Afghanistan lacks educational infrastructure and does not have enough public high schools and universities for all students to attend. Where public schools do exist, they often do not offer a high quality education. This project will make it possible for one female student to attend a private high school or university, where she will receive high quality instruction.

Solution

This microproject will provide one Afghan girl with a contributory scholarship towards the cost of tuition, books, school uniforms, stationary supplies and transport. All of these needs are necessary for her to attend a private high school and except for uniforms a university.

Long-Term Impact

By providing female students with the funds necessary to attend school, you are giving them a way to a better life, a life with options, a life without poverty. You are assuring that this girl will be one of the 32% of Afghan females ages 15-24 who are literate. These scholarship students will be empowered with the necessary tools to make a difference for themselves and allow them to contribute toward Afghan society.
