Beautiful World Canada is bringing higher education to girls facing tremendous hardships in sub-Saharan Africa.
While huge strides have been made to increase the representation of girls in primary school, girls as young as 12 years old find themselves facing difficult choices if they cannot continue their education beyond that point. Without access to higher education, girls and young women are at a higher risk of early marriage and prostitution. With access to secondary and post-secondary education, girls and young women become leaders in their communities, and they graduate with the skills needed to find gainful employment, pulling themselves, and often their entire families out of poverty.
Proceeds from the CAP Ride will support our partnerships with ROTOM Uganda, ROTOM Ethiopia and FAWE-Rwanda.
Together we are providing needed scholarships to young women to pursue higher education!
