Challenge

Afghanistan is a challenging places to be a female. Women and girls are the most marginalized and vulnerable and have the lowest literacy rate. There too few opportunities for education for girls. Girls need to be given opportunity to help them succeed. A scholarship to a private high school can help.

Solution

This project will provide scholarships for poor Afghan female students at high school. The scholarships will assist with the costs of tuition, transportation, books and supplies and the required uniforms. Financial support means high school students will graduate and be better able to care for themselves and their families.

Long-Term Impact

A scholarships changes a life. By providing female students with the funds necessary to attend school, you are giving them a path to a better life, a life with options. You are ensuring that these females will be literate, well educated and self-confident. Education is the way to closing the gap in gender equality. Students will be empowered with the necessary tools to make a difference for themselves and allow them to contribute to their communities.
