#100Scholarships Initiative

Zimbabwe

In Zimbabwe, we are supporting 100 children from 21 villages in the community of Musena in Zimbabwe. We target those children who would not otherwise go to school if no one helps them. The likely alternative for 70% of the girls in this group is that they are at risk of early marriages and no chance to pursue an education.

Educate the Girl Child Campaign

Global Program

Our Educate the Girl Child Campaign is a global campaign aimed at creating awareness and responsibility for the inclusive and sustainable education of girls. The campaign's objective is to promote access to education for girls and to ensure school completion for girls who are mostly at risk of early marriages.

Leadership Program

South Africa

Our leadership program is focused on creating future leaders through leadership interventions for young people that include emotional development, mentoring, coaching, entrepreneurship training, volunteerism and a program on sexual health and women's rights.
