Lack of school fees is a barrier to secondary education...

One of the main reasons for the low enrollment of girls in secondary school is the persistent high level of poverty.  For many girls around the world, attending school is a privilege because their families cannot afford the expensive school fees.  This puts girls education at risk and leads to more than 60% of girls worldwide not being enrolled in school.  Established in 2014 as a U.S. 501(c)3 organization, Every Girl Counts, Inc. set out to help alleviate the burden many impoverished families face when it comes to providing secondary education for their girls.  In 2016, Every Girl Counts began offering education scholarships to some of the brightest and most needy girls in Nairobi.  Starting with just 30 students, we now are providing access to eduction to over 70 students in 2018.  Join the movement to educate, empower and sustain impoverished girls through access to education.  Sponsor a student today through the Every Girl Counts Education Sponsorship Program.
