Help keep

girls

in school.

Her education changes everything!

Everyone has the right to an education. And that includes GIRLS!

Today, more than 130 million girls around the world are STILL being denied an education - simply because they were born a girl. 

For girls in Sierra Leone, staying in school is often very difficult, with only 16% completing high school. And there are many barriers for girls to access a safe and fair education, such as gender biases, her family’s income, early pregnancy and cultural attitudes and beliefs about girls' education. 

In Sierra Leone today, with COVID-19’s impact and the huge rise in fuel prices, the cost of living has spiralled and many girls have not been going to school.

At One Girl, we are passionate about educating girls AND keeping them in school. 

Meet Amina*, a One Girl scholar who is tackling the barriers to education every day.

Our Girls In School program supports girls to go to school AND stay in school. 

Working across 23 schools in two different districts in Sierra Leone, Girls In School provides girls with access to essential support such as mentorship, school fees and materials, extra tuition, lunch money and menstrual hygiene products. 

Through our Girls in School program, Amina is now able to go to school and chase her dreams of being a professional lawyer.

Make a tax-deductible donation before June 30, and help support girls, just like Amina.

Here’s what your donation can provide:

  • $33 could provide 15 One Girl Scholars with transport to and from school for 1 month.
  • $66 could provide a One Girl Scholar with lunch money for 6 months.
  • $100 can provide 2 One Girl Scholars with a solar light to help them do their homework after school.
  • $300 can provide extra tuition weekly for 3 One Girl Scholars to ensure that they are ready for exams and have homework support.
  • $600 can provide 3 One Girl Scholars with a back-to-school kit, which includes a school bag, books, pen, school uniform, ceremonial uniforms, shoes, hats, calculator, geometry set, veil, and school belt.
  • $1,000 can provide 2 One Girl Scholars with all they need for a school year. This includes a solar light to help with homework, extra tuition, a back-to-school kit, plus, lunch and transport money for an entire school year.

Today, you can support girls to access an education, stay in school and shape their future. 

BECAUSE HER EDUCATION CHANGES EVERYTHING!

A big thank you to our Supporters

The real heroes who are kindly helping us achieve our goal

Great work. As an Accountant I sense some of these countries have no idea how far they are holding back their economies and communities by limiting the potential of half their population. All the best
