Girls Education International

Location: PO Box 853 Lyons CO 80540 USA

Mission: The mission of Girls Education International is to expand and support educational opportunities for under-served females in remote and undeveloped regions of the world.

We provided 47 girls in the mountainous regions of Liberia, in Bong and Margibi counties, with education scholarships. We are working with the Liberian NGO Common Ground Society and its program director Emily Sherman-Davis. We plan on making this a long-term project, adding new girls each time our current ones graduate.

We also hope to expand the program to eventually include 100 girls, and to offer all our girls an after-school reproductive health education class, a library of school-related materials, a weekend tutoring program, and  additional stipends to cover the costs of uniforms, meals, textbooks, and other needs. The addition of a reproductive health education program and stipends to pay all the girls' educational needs will cost an additional $17,000 per year.
