Dear Friends of STS,
In 2011, over 30 million primary school-age girls were out-of-school around the world; 16.1 million of them live in sub-Saharan Africa. The consequences of not being in school at such a young age can last a lifetime: illiteracy, poverty, early marriage and childbirth, and limited opportunities for stable and safe employment.
In Guinea, the Whole Child Model is providing critical resources to help children succeed in and out of school through girls’ scholarships, teacher training, wells and latrines, and parental involvement.
This season you can give the gift of opportunity. For less than the price of a cup of coffee each day, you can provide the resources for critical programs that engage girls and boys in Guinea in their schools for one month or provide a scholarship for a girl for an entire school year. Go ahead, give that gift today.
