Ride in support of Beautiful World Canada!
Beautiful World Canada provides secondary and post-secondary comprehensive scholarships to the most marginalized girls living in Sub-Saharan Africa in the following countries: Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Uganda. Many of the girls come from remote, rural areas where the nearest school can be hours away; this can make getting an education extremely difficult.
A Beautiful World scholarship provides each girl with the financial means for housing and transportation - allowing her to either live on campus, or safely commute from home.
Success for a Beautiful World scholar is not just graduating, but is also measured by a student's ability to find employment after their education. The Grad Prep program is a series of workshops and assignments designed to teach students about the work force and how to successfully find a job after graduation.
Each student is paired with a female mentor who is representative of the positive outcome education can provide. These mentors are all successful young women who counsel and guide our students through their schooling - helping to ensure their success after graduation.
