Challenge

Women, especially in developing countries, face to barriers for higher education, because of not only inadequate financial support but also traditional thinking Study shows that when educational opportunity and resources are limited, women are less likely to get them. We want to change this situation by raising scholarship funds for higher education for female students.

Solution

While the annual average income of women graduated from higher education is 29.238 TL in 2015, the annual average income of high school graduate female employees is 16.124 TL. That is why Buldan Foundation wants to support girls for education. 100% of the funds that Buldan Foundation receives from this project will go to women as scholarships to pursue them for higher education. If these students are not supported by scholarships, they loose the chance to graduate from the university.

Long-Term Impact

The project can fully fund 100 female students for financial support by covering some of costs related to higher education, allowing them to focus on their studies, follow their dreams, and achieve positive social change. Funding women's higher education has a multiplier effect on improving the development of their communities and countries as a whole. Together, we can give women the opportunity to achieve and the future to create change in honor of whole world.
