My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Girls Education International, Lyons, CO, USA
For the past three years we have worked with Girls Educational International as implementing partner of the organization's Scholarship initiatives. During this tiime of our professional partnership, Girls Educational International has sponsored 47 girls on the scholarship program in two coounties in Liberia: namely, Margibi and Bong counties. All the girls on the scholarship program are sitting to the West African Examination this year and the GEI has agreed to pay the exam fees for all the girls. By the end of 2011, we will be able to graduate 10 girls from high, another 10 will enter high school, another 10, junior high school, another 10 completing elementary school and 7 entering elementary school. These achievements are only possible through the GEI girls scholarshp pogram. After the civil war in Liberia, the education of girls remain a serious national concern. Coming out of a war situation, the government is unable to provide adequat access to education for all girls. It is organization like GEI that is helping to improve access to girls education through the provision of scholarship. Such assistance remain a very crucial part of our progress to recovery and very important for rural girls, many of whom will not go school without financial intervention from other sources. I hope the GEI will find necessary resources to continue to support girls on this continent.
