Sponsor a PinK Girl

All girls around the world have the right to an education!

  

Research has shown that girls continue to be the single most excluded group in the world.  Ethiopia is ranked 134th out of 149 countries in the Education for All (EFA).   In Ethiopia, Girls face barriers to education that boys simply do not!  Girls in Bahir Dar and Ethiopia rarely finish their education, with many not making it past the 8th grade.   Only 12% of the girls in Bahir Dar finish high school while boys pass at a 70% rate.  Statistics from 2009 indicate that 82% of Ethiopian women aged 15 and over are illiterate, compared to 58% of men. PinK Girl is helping girls complete their educational dreams and more importantly, is an effective way of providing the girls with power, autonomy and independence to make genuine choices over the lives, their families and their community. 


For $39 a month, you'll help educate, tutor and guide a PinK Girl through school until she receives a college degree. 

Education fosters dignity and a sense of self-worth. It offers opportunities to acquire knowledge and skills and enhances life prospects. Along with nutrition, health and skills, education is a pillar of human capital: These essential elements together enable people to lead productive lives and to contribute to their countries’ economic growth and development.

We know PinK Girl is changing lives!

Top Sponsorship Questions

Does the money  go directly to the PinK Girl I am sponsoring?

As a PinK Girl sponsor, you are connected with one specific girl.  Your monthly donation is pooled for maximum effectiveness.  Meaning sponsored girls and their families do not receive the money directly.  You join forces with other sponsors to support the PinK Girl program that benefits your Girl as well as other girls in our care.

Am I the only sponsor for my PinK Girl?

Each PinK Girl is matched with one sponsor.  You will get to know your child through letters and progress updates.

How long is my commitment?

Your sponsorship is an ongoing commitment that helps your PinK Girl get the support she needs to be successful in school.  You will be helping her finish high school and be accepted to a University.  Once you have helped her get to university, Ethiopia pays for her room and board.  If you would like to continue to help with incidentals such as; books, supplies, personal care needs and travel to and from school that would be wonderful and needed.

Is my sponsorship a tax deduction?

Yes.  PinK Girl is a Registered 501c3 Charity: 82-393253.  We will provide a tax receipt each year to assist you with your tax deduction.
