A Year of School
The opportunity of her life
When crisis forces families to make difficult decisions about school, often it is young girls who stay home, denied a chance at a better life. In places like Afghanistan, Congo or Ethiopia, girls’ schooling is critical: educated girls become smart, strong women committed to leading their communities toward stability. In Ethiopia alone, we helped educate nearly 4,500 girls in 2012. $56 can supply the tuition, books and other supplies a girl needs to attend school for a year.
