Educate girls and fight poverty in Senegal

Together, we are making a difference!

Thank you for your recent support of Women's Global Education Project Senegal! With your help, Women's Global is making a measurable difference in the lives of our scholars, their families and their communities, and is making a positive impact on the state of girls' education in the villages where we work.

Women's Global Senegal partner Union Democratique Des Ensiegnantes de Senegal (UDEN) recently completed an analysis of the impact of our scholarship, support and awareness programs. Their analysis found that:

1. After a specific community participated in our girls' education awareness programs, there was a marked increase in the number of resident girls in that community who attended school

2. Over the five years that Women's Global and UDEN have worked in these communities, the number of elementary and secondary schools have steadily increased as more community leaders recognize the value of education, especially for girls

3. In these communities, academic success among girls has been on the rise, and fewer girls are dropping out of school prematurely

We could not do this work without your continued support. Thank you for your commitment to the fight against global poverty through the education of girls!
