THE STORY:

Female education rates are highly correlated with a variety of positive social, economic, and health outcomes, and targeted scholarships can eliminate prevalent financial barriers for many women to complete secondary school. In three months, create an online fundraising program to raise scholarship funds for 100 girls to attend secondary school as a pilot, then scale up to 10,000 girls over 1 month. The Problem: Educating women is widely accepted as a crucial path toward development. “There is clear and convincing evidence, amassed over the past two decades, that investing in girl-specific resources leads to better educated, safer, healthier, and economically powerful adolescent girls. This can contribute to a substantially better future not just for the individual girls, but for their families, communities, and our world”.1 Educated girls increase their earning potential by 25 percent, and will reinvest 90 percent of that into her family.2 Girls who complete education are also 3x less likely to become infected with HIV, and will have children who are 40 percent more likely to be healthy and live past the age of 5.3 A 1 percent increase in female secondary school attendance single handedly grows a country’s average annual per income by 0.3 percent.4 Yet financial constraints remain a major barrier to education for young women.5 Public primary school in Kenya is tuition-free, while tuition costs for high school are substantial. Fewer than 50 percent of girls in mafraq jordan will complete high school because they cannot afford these school fees.6 A quality public high school in mafraq can cost up to $5000 per child, and with income of $755 most jordanian families
