Summary

The Asherah Foundation offers scholarships to outstanding women from all over the world who have survived civil wars, extreme poverty, forced marriages, and discrimination, among others. Since 2017, respectively 2018, we are supporting the dreams of Maryline and Maklin, two women from Liberia and Yemen, who want to bring change into their communities through education. After partially financing their school for the past years, it is vital to help them graduate and achieve their goals.

Challenge

Maryline is a Liberian woman who escaped an abusive forced marriage, currently pursuing a bachelor degree in Environmental Health Science. Maklin, from Yemen, has left her country in the hope of getting the education Yemeni women are unjustly deprived of, currently pursuing a PhD in Economics at The Institute for Arab Research and Studies, in Egypt. We are dedicated to support them achieve their dreams and strengthen their voices against gender inequalities.

Solution

The Asherah Foundation will partly cover school-related expenses, ensuring that despite the financial problems, they can continue their studies until graduation. Their ability to attend school will not only translate into their ability to obtain a university degree, but also into a small milestone towards gender equality. The acquired knowledge will guard Maryline from further abuses, while Maklin's results will bring Yemen a step closer to offering equal education chances to both genders.

Long-Term Impact

Expected to graduate in 2021, this project will help the two women to get closer to their academic goals. Once they obtain their desired education, they will have the freedom to choose their own path in their careers and lives, making them more financially stable. The impact of the project will also bring a change in the opportunities for the next generation, the cultural norms and perceptions of women getting altered once successful women enter the work force.
