Educate a Scientist
Girls Science Training
Studies show: educating African girls provides a pathway out of poverty benefits not only their families, but their communities, as well. In many cases, female secondary school graduates go on to fill positions of leadership and have a profound effect on African society. Starting in January 2010, African Children's Haven will initiate a program to address this problem for a small group of girls with superior academic potential, but who lack the resources to pursue high quality education.
This gift will send an African girl with a high aptitude for science and math to an elite secondary school for a week. Your gift includes not only school fees, but also room, board, books and mentoring by some of Africa's leading women scientists.
