A quality education has given Pamela a chance to leap forward to a better future. Help give other girls a leg up with a quality education!
For most of her young life, Pamela has taken care of others. As the eldest daughter, it was expected that she would stay home and help with childcare and household chores. Sadly, home was not a happy place. Pamela's father is an alcoholic and he often physically abused Pamela, her mother and her siblings. No one was safe. Luckily, Pamela's mother discovered Horizon Initiative, and Pamela was accepted into the program.
"I am Pamela and I'm 20 years old. My age means I'm an adult, but I'm still in high school. That's because for so many years my life was hard and I fell behind. My father drinks too much alcohol and for years he abused me, my mother and all my brothers and sisters. I could not go to school because I had to help my mother work so we could buy food and stay alive. My mother loves me and still works very hard for our family.
Now I live at Baba NyumbaniÃÂ (Horizon Initiative) where I am safe from abuse, and I go to school each day. In time I want to become a nurse and help the sick in my village."
Last year, GreaterGood.org's Girls' Scholarship Program sent Pamela to school for a year. A flagship program of GROW (Girls' Right to Opportunity Worldwide), we work with organizations around the globe to provide a year of education to girls who need it most. Pamela is extremely grateful of the opportunity and is one step closer to achieving her dreams of becoming a nurse. With your ongoing support, we can continue to help young girls like Pamela receive the education they deserve.
Join us in our mission to send girls to school! With an average annual tuition costing $375 for one girls' tuition, you can provide a month of tuition for just $31.25. Help girls take a huge step toward success!
