Our Message

{ "en": "

Join the Graceland Africa Mission team(s) as we raise funds by riding, walking, etc, because every girl has a \"right to be\" educated.

 

Education is a human right, yet many children, particularly girls, are denied the opportunity to obtain the knowledge, skills, and capabilities necessary to obtain an empowered and equal role in society.

 

Research has shown that educated girls and women aspire to become leaders; are healthier and have healthier and more educated children; are better able to protect their families from the effects of economic and environmental turmoil; and have greater economic and equal work opportunities.

 

Approximately 2 million girls of school-going age in Kenya are not in school, less than 50 percent of eligible girls are enrolled in secondary schools, and less than 10% of graduating girls continue their education at college or university.

 

Right to Be, is a girls scholarship program dedicated to helping Kenyan girls obtain secondary and post-secondary school education. Girls are chosen based on their financial need, their ability and desire to continue their studies, and the agreement of their families to allow the girls to pursue secondary and post-secondary education.

 

With the effects of the pandemic, school expenses have dramatically increased making the need for scholarships even more critical.  Let’s get moving and make a difference!

Please donate and help support the cause!  Together, we can help girls gain equality through education!
