Pathfinder Progress Report for June-August 2013

Pathfinder International Ethiopia and Addis Ababa Women Association

GlobalGiving Educate and Empower 800 Ethiopian Girls (Merged previous Girls' Scholarships project and Girl Effect project)

June- August 2013 Report

 1. BACKGROUND

GlobalGiving donors have generously supported Pathfinder International’s project to empower women and girls in Ethiopia by providing scholarships for their continued education to mitigate their risk of drop-out and to build their life and leadership skills. Since May 2008, Pathfinder recruited 104 female students from poor families through its newly-merged GlobalGiving projects now called Educate and Empower 800 Ethiopian Girls. In this project 77 girls from Addis Ababa and 27 girls from the Amhara region are receiving scholarship assistance and orientation on youth reproductive health issues.

During this reporting period, seven new girls have been recruited and received scholarship assistance. Due to the new scholarship assistance they received, these female students have been able to continue their studies this September—the start of a new school year.
