A year of school
$52 can supply the tuition, books and other materials to send a young girl to school for a full year, giving her the chance of a better, brighter life. When crisis forces parents to make tough decisions about sending their children to school, young girls must often stay home. But in places like Afghanistan, girls’ schooling is critical: educated girls become smart, strong women committed to leading their communities toward recovery and peace. That’s why we helped more than 210,000 girls attend school in 2011— many for the first time.
