Highlights: How Your Donations Were Used

CAI envisions a future full of hope, where every person—female or male—has the opportunity to develop her or his full human potential. Towards this vision, in 2019, our programs focused on three main goals:

Increasing Access to Education

for students of all ages by offering programs from preschool to adult literacy.


425 students, 

69% of whom were female, received scholarships in 2019.

Supporting Teachers

to ensure quality education.


686 teachers, 

60% of whom were female, participated in professional development training or received salary support.

Ensuring Children

have safe and healthy environments in which to learn and thrive.


568 students, 

77% of whom were female, benefited from new or renovated classrooms and schools.

These are just a few of the things we were able to accomplish thanks to your investment in education. Your contributions have changed so many lives.


She is the key

When girls and women thrive, their families, communities, and nations prosper. That’s why, with your help, we’re investing in their education.
