Students are ready to pursue their dreams right now. They are waiting to hear from you.

Sharifa’s Nightmare

Read her story

Even for the most determined women and girls, education is often out of reach. They are too poor, and their families push them to follow tradition and marry young.

One student said, “I realized that if I follow tradition, for the rest of my life I’ll live with a strange man, stay at home and look after my children; this would be the end of my dream for higher education.”

You have the power to do something about it. Education gives them the opportunity to choose their path. 

You have a choice.
