RISE Scholarship

We believe empowering women is the key to lifting communities out of poverty and creating lasting change.

 

RISE Scholar Program empowers young women to overcome traditional barriers affecting their ability to participate fully and pursue their education.

 

The scholarship provides financial, educational, and social support to give the scholars the knowledge, skills, and tools they need to pursue higher education and make a positive difference in their communities.

The program aims to foster self-belief and, as a result, support these young women to be actively committed to their education and pursue a future beyond the traditional role of women in rural communities.

 

Our 12 scholars were chosen out of 60 girls who went through an 8-week summer program where they were taught and observed. The 8-week program was designed to prepare the girls for their return to school after the pandemic and was used as a feeder for the scholarship program.
