Summary

This Global Giving project will provide three new TIES scholarships. TIES (the Technology In Education Society, a registered charity) grants four-year degree program scholarships to deserving young women in Kenya. Scholarships are granted only to students who would otherwise be unable to pay for university due to financial hardship, and only to young women in order to advance gender equality.

Challenge

In Kenya, education is in theory free, but at every level significant fees must be paid by students' families. Many families cannot afford to send all their kids to school. Education is often preferentially given to boys rather than girls. At the university level the fees are higher, the government funding program is effectively bankrupt, and girls face early marriage. TIES scholarships go to young women with the academic record for university admission but who face extreme financial hardship.

Solution

This project will fund three additional young women in Kenya for a four-year university degree. Without the TIES scholarships these women would be completely unable to afford university education due to their family's financial situation.

Long-Term Impact

It is well documented that education is a driver for economic and societal advancement in any country. Advances are even greater in developing countries (where all TIES projects are carried out). And by supporting women's education there are additional benefits. Educated women get married later, have (on average) smaller families, and are far more likely to send their kids (both boys and girls!) to school. Young women with an education also have family incomes that are higher than average.
