Project Report | Dec 18, 2023
From SGT to PhD

By Erica Stone | President

12,000 girls are in school with SGT this year
12,000 girls are in school with SGT this year

Ramila, an alum of STOP Girl Trafficking, has been awarded a scholarship to pursue her dream of becoming a doctor. SGT usually focuses on girls from grades 1 to 12, but Ramila had special circumstances.

She became part of SGT in grade 5; her mother was not well, and her father was a laborer with little regard or money for his daughter’s education. A teacher at her school was worried Ramila would drop out and become a child laborer, or worse, and asked SGT to enroll her. With the help of AHF, and her own determination, she completed grade 10 with distinction, then took science in senior high school, with a GPA of 3.32 in grade 12.

It wasn’t easy. Ramila suffered with depression from personal hardships, including her father’s passing and her mother’s declining mental health. But she persevered and was awarded a full government scholarship for medical school. AHF has committed to taking care of her rent and living expenses while she pursues her degree.

We’re so proud of her. And grateful to you. Your generosity lets so many girls like Ramila reach for the stars. Thank you.
