Mission of Edu-Girls, Inc
Edu-GIRLS' mission is to help girls living in extreme poverty achieve financial independence through a system of free, holistic, and need-based education, vocational training, and college scholarships, customized to overcome barriers of class and gender.
This project prepares girls for the technology-driven job by developing information technology (IT) skills and integrating technology into school lesson plans.
Why We Love This Project
We love Edu-GIRLS’s focus on offering customized, quality education for girls living in urban poverty. It does this by offering flexible school times, pre and after school care, a secure campus, safe and quick transportation, nutrition, basic health care, winter clothing, sports and performing arts, vocational training or college scholarships, and parental/family counseling. Most importantly, Edu-GIRLS provides girls with smart classrooms, laptops, and customized IT skills to prepare them for well-paying jobs.
