Since 2012 girls have been sponsored in Chwitiziribal to go to High School and beyond. This year we have 14 students sponsored at various levels of high school, vocational school and university! All these students attended the elementary school in Chwitizirbal and are an inspiration to the younger students about what is possible for them!
This project has transformed these girls, their families and this community!
Thank you incredible and generous sponsors!
