The scholarship includes tuition, living and accommodation cost, and other educational cost such us training, practicum, and seminars.
In 2019, there are 20,234 high school graduates are unemployed. One of the causes of the problem is that high school graduates in Bali lack a specific skill to obtain a job in the job market. In this case, girls become more vulnerable. Girls who finished high school and become unemployed are considered as the burden for the family, thus they are often received different treatment compared to the boys. This project is helping girls to obtain more skills and able to support their families.
