World's Children Scholarship Fund
Eliminate poverty through education
Educate Girls – World’s Children Scholarship Fund
90% of our scholarship students are impoverished young women. In the 2020-21 academic year, 278 students in India received college and vocational scholarships. 72 graduated in 2021 with an advanced degree! This is a very successful program that ends poverty.
“Educational achievements of women can have ripple effects within the family and across generations. Investing in girls’ education is one of the most effective ways to reduce poverty.” –United Nations Population Fund
