Please donate now to help us raise the scholarship funds necessary to support 13 Zambian girls all the way through their educations!
Leah is a 19 year old orphan whose parents died of HIV/AIDS. Because of the stigma of HIV/AIDS in her society, nobody would help her with her school funding, and she became a house maid to make money. After a friend invited her to the Lubuto Model Library, she applied to the scholarship program and was accepted.
Recognizing the importance of education in a successful life, Leah said, "School is important... especially to a girl child. Through school you can become a doctor, president, nurse, lawyer, etc." Without your help, girls like Leah would not have the opportunity to complete school and get on track to having a successful life.
The scholarship program provides school supplies, books, uniforms, and sanitary supplies to its recipients. $1,500 is needed by NEXT WEEK to support Leah and 12 other girls through the 2021 school year. Donate now to support their educations!
