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.
