THE STORY:

Ginny Carroll is coming to the University of Maryland on October 14th, 2015. Please consider donating this cause to show her our support!

The University of Maryland Panhellenic intends to raise $30,000 to build a school through the Circle of Sisterhood - all money donated will go directly to our school's fund. 

The Circle of Sisterhood, founded by Ginny Carroll, is an organization with the goal of breaking down educational barriers for women and girls living in poverty. Only 7% of the world has a college education - and by educating more women, we have the power to change the world. Educated women earn 25% more income and when women earn an income, they reinvest 90% into their families to break the cycle of poverty. Now there is an opportunity for all sorority women, regardless of affiliation, to come together as a powerful force to provide opportunities for women and girls worldwide. Sorority women are fortunate to have the one thing that will help most women out of poverty—an education. As such, we have a responsibility to those less fortunate.

FOUR school builds have been funded. We provide scholarships, tuition, uniforms, boarding school fees, malaria nets, libraries, teachers, tutors, computers, and more. Please see below for a general breakdown of the money donated!

$ 0.24 A notebook and a pencil —an essential part of a girl's schooling.

$ 3.30 A nutritious noon meal —often the only food children receive during the day that is essential to students' learning, and sometimes have to walk 3 miles in hot weather to and from school.

$ 7.00 A set of textbooks to call her own.

$29.00 A school uniform—so a girl can confidently enter school. For some girls, who may have one shirt and shoes that are taped together, a school uniform can significantly boost her confidence and inspire her to achieve.

$58.00 A Bicycle—in many parts of the world, bicycles can provide safety and make education possible. Distance is often a major obstacle to girls' attendance at school.

$53.00 School for one year—can send a girl in some parts of the developing world to school for one year with everything she needs to be successful – supplies, uniform, tuition and lunch every day.
