For a girl growing up poor in Africa, a single item can stand between her and an education. It might be a pair of shoes. It might be a notebook and a few pencils. Or it might be that, struggle as they might, her parents simply cannot raise enough money for school fees.
As children around the world start school during the next few weeks, we're thinking about the children in communities where we work who yearn to return to school, but cannot. What if we could provide those children with the one item that threatens to disrupt their education?
Children like 16-year-old Abdulai, who lives in Chereponi, a district in northern Ghana. Abdulai has been a star student all her life. But when she lost her father two years ago, she was forced to drop out of school. Instead of going to class so she could pursue her dream of becoming a journalist, she spent her days selling soap in the market.
Her story could have ended there - if it weren't for supporters like you. Today, Abdulai has a full scholarship, and she is back in school, poised to begin her last year of senior high school and brimming with confidence. "I see the sky as my starting point to greatness," she says.
You can give a child like Abdulai the opportunity to shine. Donate now and give her the one thing that might be standing in her way.
