Summary

Why should you invest in education bursary programs like ours? Simply put, these programs do more than provide a secondary education, they're a vital cog in the global movement to empower women and girls and improve community. Thandolwenkosi is one such leader who's driving positive change thanks to the strong foundation a bursary built. The YWOW (Young Women of Worth) project at Epworth, in South Africa, provides education for and cultivates the potential of young women such as Thandolwenkosi.

Challenge

To build strong communities, we must empower girls. Bridges must be built to connect them to the education they need to grow and break the cycle of poverty to become effective leaders. The Bergen Project found: "South African girls are at a disadvantage in attaining quality education because of the patriarchal nature of our society. Women occupy a lower social status than men and are socialized to work in the home as mothers. This de-emphasizes the importance of receiving an education."

Solution

Contributions to our program builds bridges for young women to grow and cultivate their gifts and potential! "A bridge was built for me to attend Epworth and gain access its great education here in Africa. I received an academic scholarship to attend Epworth in Grade 7. This literally opened the door of opportunity as more bursaries followed ~ to the University of Cape Town, Wits University (Honours) and Oxford Brookes University, UK (Masters)." - Thandolwenkosi Mthembu, bursary recipient.

Long-Term Impact

Today, Thandolwenkosi, like many other bursary recipients, is a leader in her industry, community, and family. When you lean into an initiative like the Young Women of Worth, you don't only give a girl the chance for an education, but you help her build a bright future for herself, her family, and her community. No contribution is too small or too big, we need all hands-on-deck to build a future of great women leaders who will also build future generations for our country and world. Join us!
