How You Can Help
School costs about $2,000/year for each girl. This includes tuition, textbooks, school supplies, uniforms, etc. (Click here to learn more about School Costs and to see exactly what was spent in 2013). The amazing news is that thanks to the incredible generosity of so many people, we were able to meet our goal in 2013 to send Rabia, Scolastica, Rahma, and Nureen to school (they started January 2014)! And the following year we were also able help Lillian, Maryam, and Beatrice attend school. However, some sponsorship programs end up abandoning kids half-way because they run out of funds, and we refuse to be one of those. We never want to find ourselves in a situation where one of our girls can’t continue school in January because we were short on fundraising that year. So your generosity is greatly appreciated!
I’ve personally spent time with and seen the homes of all of these girls and can vouch for their genuine amazingness, as well as their devastatingly dire circumstances. I hate asking for money – but these girls are definitely worth it.
