Inspiring the Next Generation to Follow Their Dreams
The Challenge In poor rural communities, children drop out of primary school to help their families earn money, collect water, and take care of their younger siblings. If they complete the 6th grade, opportunities to continue their education are significantly diminished. To attend high school and college, rural students must travel to the city, purchase school supplies, and pay tuition.
The Opportunity We partner each student with a sponsor who will cover their tuition, transportation, and school supplies for high school and/or college. By removing the obstacles to pursuing higher education, students can finish their degrees, focus on reaching their career dreams, and break the cycle of poverty in their communities.
