Your dollars are used to support children from childhood through higher education.  Because of your generosity, graduates are able to continue their education and gain employment in their respective areas of study. Through the higher education program, these incredibly deserving girls have gone off to various polytechnic schools and universities, allowing them to study a diverse range of subjects including education, business, engineering, agriculture and supply-chain management.
