Girls just wanna.... go to school
Education keeps girls away from early marriage, builds self-esteem, and prepares them for a life of opportunity, yet many girls are kept from school by gender bias, household labor, insecurity, lack of girls' toilets, and poverty.
With donations from our network, NCP's Give a Girl a Chance fund supports girls in going to school in Myanmar, Nepal, Congo, South Sudan, Rwanda and Malawi. A hill tribe girl from Myanmar, Ma Aung (photo) received NCP support through middle and high school, and continues to be supported in university, where she's studying to be a chemistry teacher!
$30 - $60 = year’s tuition (differs from one area to another)
$750 = college tuition for someone like Ma Aung
$20 = hygienic supplies for the school year
$10 - $20 - $50 = shoes – school uniform – desk
We helped South Sudanese girls get through high school, but they wanted more! So we launched Second Step to send them to college or skills training in Uganda, inviting individuals and groups to provide all or part of a girls’ support for two years. Provide $750 per year or a portion thereof - receive a photo and bio of the girl. Every gift helps these girls take their Second Step!
