Tuition

Our tuition drive starts with re-sponsorship in February, March and April where we hope families who have sponsored a child in the past will re sponsor them for the next school year.  We have capped our 2019 enrollment number to 350 students in order to guarantee we are able to continue to make a difference in a child’s life by committing to keeping them sponsored for their entire education.

 

Many of our supporters have committed to sponsoring the same child yearly for their entire education. Now those are some lucky kids to have that kind of support on their entire scholastic journey!  We also understand that not all or our students will be re-sponsored each year by their previous sponsor. In these cases we take all new donations and hold them in a “to be allocated” account that assures us we can re-enroll  all of our previous students first.  

 

You will notice during our tuition drives  that we are actively posting on facebook looking for sponsorship. You can sponsor a child for an entire year for $100.00. 

 

We encourage you to  donate at any time during the year toward a child or like many who want to help our small organization will note on their donation  “to be used where needed most” That helps us cover unforeseen medical expenses, travel and extra supplies that come up during the year. We are covering a lot of ground and a lot of kids.  We are a true nonprofit and welcome “to be used where needed most” donations!   

 

Please join us and sponsor a child

 

The effect your donation has on a child’s life is measurable.  Girl Power Africa will connect you directly with your student via Facebook and our Blog  

If you have sponsored a child in the past you can look up the status of your student by typing your name in our blog search engine here.

The FACTS

  • When a girl in the developing world receives 7 or more years of education, she marries 4 years later and has 2.2 fewer children.
  • An extra year of primary school boosts girls’ eventual wages by 10-20%. An extra year of secondary school: 15-25%.
  • When women and girls earn income, they reinvest 90% of it into their families, as compared to only 30-40% for a man.
  • For girls to get to a place where they feel secure, there needs to be education for all.
