Local young women who are drop-out's and mothers see a few professional women visiting Rotifunk, like government officials and nonprofit organization workers. And they see Rosaline Kaimbay, former high school principal and now managing director of our local partner, CCET.
“They admire them so much, “ Daniel says. “They know they themselves are intelligent, and say ’if that woman can do this, why not me?’ ”
Exactly. Why not them?
There's more young women like Hawanatu anxious to return to school again who need a second chance.
You can help them get back into school for a full year and put their lives back on track with a $17 scholarship. Amazing.
They’ll be expanding their lives. They'll raise healthier children and see they are educated. And they’ll break the cycle of subsistence living that’s held their families back for generations.
Add a school uniform to the scholarship for a new 10th grader and it's only $35 to keep a young woman in school for a whole year.
It's easy. Just click here: I'll send a young woman to school.
