Help Girlie finish secondary school and follow her dream of becoming a teacher in the Philippines!
Funds raised over the goal amount will help other deserving girls like Girlie attend Holy Cross Academy in the Philippines.
Girlie is a 13 year-old girl living in Digos City in the Philippines. She lost her mother due to illness when she was young and her father is illiterate and unable to provide for their large family. She was sent along with her sister, Leah, to the Haven of Hope Orphanage. She dreams of one day becoming a teacher so she can share her love of learning with others in her community. Donors like you helped Girlie finish 8th grade, and now she needs your help to finish secondary school at Holy Cross Academy!
Previous Years Your Donations Have Funded
One common barrier to opportunities that Filipino young women face is getting pregnant at far too young of an age. Early childbearing forces young women—particularly those from lower socioeconomic status—to drop out of school to raise their child. In the Philippines, private school education is the best option for girls to reach their fullest potential.
Thanks to your support, the eight girls living in the Haven of Hope Orphanage have been given an opportunity to attend private school. We are happy to report that among the eight girls living in the Transition House, not one has dropped out! These girls are grateful to have role models in their life that can help them make positive choices.
With your help, we can send Girlie to school for a year! Your gift will give her the opportunity of a lifetime. Your donation will help provide her with a year of tuition, a uniform and school supplies.
Consider making a monthly gift. When you give just $11.54 monthly, you ensure Girlie or another girl at Holy Cross Academy has a permanent scholarship until she graduates.
