SEE THE FULL STORY

Our goal
We want to ensure that girls stay safe and healthy amid COVID-19 school closures.
The Challenge

1.5 Billion children around the world are out of school due to COVID-19.

Girls in our scholarship program are returning home to villages that are not well equipped or educated on how to deal with a possible viral outbreak.

In rural Kenya and Senegal, residents do not own cleaning supplies like soap and hand sanitizer, and many lack resources for remote learning.

Our Solution

Supply distribution and proactive community education will save lives.

Women's Global Education Project (WGEP) is working with local program partners and staff in Kenya and Senegal to distribute soap, rice, and remote learning tools to families in need.

WGEP developed informational materials and instructional videos to educate scholars and community members on proper handwashing, social distancing, and how to create non-medical face masks. WGEP is also appearing on local radio broadcasts to further educate community members on how to stay safe during the crisis.

Your Impact

Every $100 we raise supports an at-home learning kit for one girl in rural Africa.

Each at-home learning kit includes soap for handwashing, a 25kg bag of rice to combat food insecurity, a lantern for studying without electricity, and a radio to tune in to remote learning lessons.

$5,000 Minimum Funding Goal
  • 35%-Radios for remote learning

  • 30%-Rice to combat food insecurity

  • 15%-Solar lanterns for reading

  • 13%-Community health awareness

  • 4%-Stripe processing fees

  • 3%-Soap and cleaning supplies

$5,000 Campaign Booster Funding

This displays the maximum incremental additional funding the campaign could receive (Maximum Funding Amount (MFA) less Minimum Funding Goal)). For example, if the MFA is $100,000 and the MFG $10,000, it would show the difference of $90,000 here.

  • 50%-Radio programs

  • 46%-Calling cards

  • 4%-Stripe Processing Fees
