Change a life! Sponsor a girl in high school or university in Tanzania.
Due to widespread poverty and discrimination, even the brightest Tanzanian girls often are denied an education. Some 95% of them do not graduate from high school. In many families a son’s education is prioritized and girls are forced to stay at home and help with domestic chores until they marry.
TGFT selects promising girls for sponsorship in a Tanzanian boarding high school, including all school fees, textbooks and supplies, medical care and comprehensive support.
Educating a girl in Vietnam boosts her chances of a life with choices and opportunities.
Education in Vietnam is free but the price of school fees, uniforms and required “extra tuition” tutoring classes prevents many young girls from ever entering the schoolhouse. CEF enables girls living in poverty to attend school and university, boosting their chances of a life with meaningful choices and expanded opportunities.
Equip a future leader with the educational tools she needs to improve her life and community.
Amigos de Santa Cruz supports the communities of Santa Cruz la Laguna, located on Lake Atitlan. The organization's dedicated staff comprised almost entirely of local women and men operate education and youth programs to equip future leaders with the tools they need to improve their lives and their communities.
Provide a high quality education for a deaf child in Vietnam.
For a majority of deaf and hearing-impaired children in many parts of Vietnam, going to school is not a possibility. No learning sign language. No making friends. No playing on sports teams with other kids. The resulting inability to communicate (even with family members) leads to social isolation, typically a lifetime of poverty and low self-worth. Hearing & Beyond transforms this trajectory by providing high quality education for deaf and hearing-impaired children.
Enfranchise indigenous young women so they can attend university and turn around their lives.
Through Progresa, CCI provides university sponsorships for impoverished indigenous youth, especially from rural areas. Very few of these students are able to obtain a higher education in their communities. Sponsorships pay for tuition, room and board. Access to higher education brings choice into the lives of young women and the opportunity to be social change agents in their country’s growth and economic development.
