Support the Girls Empowerment Through Education Project in Ethiopia
By donating to the Girls Empowerment Through Education Project in Ethiopia, you're helping us to create awareness programs and promote girl-friendly schools that will impact the lives of 5,000 girls between the ages of 7 to 14 in 24 of the most marginalized communities in Yeka and Akaki, two sub-cities of Addis Ababa. Your support will help:
- Establish girls' clubs in schools to create a support system that promotes an understanding of girls' rights.
- Celebrate an annual girls' day in schools to build community awareness about the importance of a primary eduation for girls among parents and teachers.
- Improve girls' academic performance by offering tutorial classes so that girls don't fall behind and ultimately end up dropping out of school.
- Create girl-friendly schools that are safe from violence, with separate bathrooms and adequate drinking water.
