WHO WE ARE
Fund a Girl is an initiative established with the aim to support underprivileged girls, especially those in secondary schools, in their quest for an education. Many girls are forced to drop out of school and get into early child marriages due to many circumstances such as lack of school fees, lack of school supplies and welfare day to day needs, absence of motivation/inspiration and inadequate sexual and reproductive health information. On average, a rural secondary school girl only needs Mk60,000 to get her through a whole year studies. Fund a Girl is committed to making a difference by helping these girls complete their studies in contribution to the future they want by giving people who have passion to help others a platform to make a difference by supporting these girls in school.
