Expanding educational opportunities for girls in Ethiopia
Dear Friends of Enhance Worldwide,
Enhance Worldwide works every day to make education a reality for over 150 girls and young women in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Through your support, Enhance Worldwide can continue to send girls to school by providing uniforms, school registration fees, supplemental nutrition, life skills and reproductive health education, cooking fuel and blankets, financial literacy, as well as shoes, notebooks, pens and pencils and backpacks.
In addition to our Kinship Care and Rising Autonomy Programs, Enhance has 10 students currently enrolled in their second year of the first-ever university cohort through our partnership with the Kapadia Education Foundation. With new scholarships underway, Enhance Worldwide endeavors to continue this sustainable approach to breaking the intergenerational cycle of poverty and to empower girls and young women to fight against gender inequality by ensuring their own financial independence.
As we approach #GivingTuesday on November 28th, we hope to expand educational opportunities to the girls on the program waiting list. Enhance's community-based approach allows any donation level to bring significant impact in greatly reducing the risk of child marriage, trafficking, child labor, and street violence for these young women.
Education is a human right, and one that can be provided to all. It only costs $15 to send a girl to school for a month, and less than $100 to send a girl to school for six months. In addition, GlobalGiving will provide a 100% match on all recurring donations started on Giving Tuesday (November 28th) up to $200.00. There has never been a time in which girls were afforded equal access to quality education. Make a difference. Be the Change. Move the world. The work of Enhance Worldwide will not cease until all girls have access to quality education.
