This microproject will give a scholarship to one Afghan girl. It will contribute to the costs of tuition, books, school uniforms, 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 quality school or university.
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.
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.
This project will change the course of this girl's life. By giving to this project, you are opening a world of possibility for her. You are assuring that she will be one of the 12.6% of Afghan women who are literate. As she grows and begins her own family, she will pass her desire to learn on to her children helping to create a better future for Afghanistan.
Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Help Fund Scholarships for Afghan Students. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
