Give a Girl a Chance is NCP's program to help girls and women around the world have a have a decent chance for a decent life. For the girls, this means keeping them in school in places like South Sudan, where 90 percent of girls don't complete elementary school, and a 15 year-old girl is more likely to die giving birth than to graduate from high school. Or rural Malawi, where nearly half of all girls are married before they turn 18, in part due to the inaccessibility of school (high school is a 7 mile walk each way in rural areas). We offer scholarships, shoes, mosquito nets, bicycles - whatever they need to succeed. As for women, they are often reduced to near-slave labor, the sex trade or work that lacks dignity or opportunity. Through microloans or skills training organized by our partners, we help them have better choices.

"We had many quarrels in our homes previously; our husbands considered us useless, as we didn’t bring

anything to the table. We now have food; our husbands are happy. Men now recognize us as talented

like them." – Nyirankumoumukiza Christine, Kabumba, Rwanda, beneficiary of our microloan program,

and more recently of a scholarship for a tailoring course

Working through grassroots partners in Nepal, Myanmar, South Sudan, Rwanda, Congo,

Malawi and Zambia, these programs are carried out respectfully, effectively and efficiently.

See all this goodness in action: here's the album from our 2020 Nepal Learning Tour.

Here's more info on NCP support of girls' education; more on women's tailoring programs here

and microloans here, including options for designated gifts.

 

Our new A Girl and a Bike program helps high school girls in Malawi who are 7 miles and $45

away from school  the miles a logistical challenge, and the money scarcer as climate change

has ruined the local farm economy. So $110 gets a girl a bike ($65) and tuition ($45).

Along with all the other benefits, educating girls and empowering women are two of the top ten things the world need to do to get a handle on climate change, according to the book Drawdown. And a renown conservationist replied "Educate girls" when asked about the most important thing to do to preserve Africa's wildlife.

Give girls and women the chance they need for the life they deserve!

 

As always, 100 percent of donations to our Special Projects go to the programs themselves - really!
