The Girls You Choose To Support
In rural Mozambique, graduation from High School, let alone elementary school is a far away dream for many young girls. With school fees, transportation costs, and other school-related expenses for uniforms, backpacks, and books, the majority of parents are unable to keep their girls in school. Many girls drop out and their only option is to get married.
10% of all proceeds from The Signature Program will go to support Kurandza.org. With your help, together we can reach the goal of $10,000 for 2018. How will this help:
Pays for scholarships that include: school fees, books, school supplies, transportation, backpacks, and uniforms.
Holistic education program that includes: after school tutoring, health education, health care, warm meals, extra-curricular activities like sports, art, and theatre, empowerment workshops and lessons on confidence, self-esteem, and dreams for the future, and parent-teacher conferences.
Employs 10 women in Mozambique including tutors, educators, counselors, and the program directors. It’s important for us to employ local women who are actually from the community where we work, and who know the culture.
Because so many parents of our scholarship recipients never went to school, it’s important for us to have regular meetings with them, so that they can be supportive of their children’s education.
