Today we are facing an unprecedented time in our history. The COVID-19 pandemic is having an impact on the health of our people, the health of the global economy, and the way we live our daily lives.
In efforts to limit the spread of the virus, schools and univeresities around the world are closing, forcing students out of their classrooms. The Liberian government has closed all schools, and additionally, Tubman University is closed. But do not forget, we still need to support female students during this uncertain time.
IN SOLIDARITY WITH GIRLS EVERYWHERE AT THIS TIME
Educate Girls Network is continuing to support and will continue to support girls’ education at Tubman University (TU) in Maryland County, Liberia.
Please join us in our initiative. You can donate directly through our fundraising page at GoFundMe called, “Help Liberian Girls Become teachers”. You can also contact us at educ8girls @gmail.com .
People often ask why I started the Educate Girls Network.
When I was growing up in Peru, I was inspired by life-changing educational opportunities. Having experienced and then seen how young women struggle to obtain an education in both Peru and in Liberia, I wanted to do the same for Liberian girls.
Thanks to every one of you 14 fantastic network friends who have contributed to our initiative so far, with their direct donations through GoFundMe.
With your support, we were able to raise 86% of the requirement to provide scholarships to more girls to continue their high education at Tubman University in Harper, Maryland County in Liberia, West Africa.
We are working hard to raise more funds to reach 100% of our goal, so more girls can receive a scholarship at Tubman University. Encourage your friends to join us and support our initiative. Your contributions will make a difference – that’s guaranteed.
You can donate through our GoFundMe page “Help Liberian Girls Become Teachers” or contact us via our email address educ8girls @ gmail.com.
Tresa T. Dalieh was an Educate Girls Network (EGN) scholar and graduated in May 2018. She has been studying nursing in the Health and Science College at Tubman University.
Her dream has become a reality, and now she is a nurse. She can now help to treat her fellow Liberians whom she knows are always in need of medical attention. Tresa is currently participating in professional practice, serving at the Jackson F. Doe Memorial Hospital in Tappeta, Nimba County, Liberia.
Join us and support our initiative. Your contributions will make a difference – you can see that’s guaranteed. You can donate through the GOFUNDME page, “Help Liberian Girls Become Teachers” or contact us at email@example.com.
Great news from the Tubman University in Liberia! Among recent graduates were two young women who had scholarships from EGN.
Congratulations to EGN scholars Sabeh M. W. Tejeleh and Tresa T. Dalieh for their achievements. We are very proud of both of them. EGN has provided scholarships for both these female students and on June 20, 2018 they graduated, one becoming a teacher and one becoming a nurse. And a big thank you to all network friends and donors for their support!

We were able to provide scholarships to four female students in the current academic year of 2017-18 at Tubman University. All the students come from very poor villages in the rural areas of Maryland, Grand Kru and River Gee Counties in the southeast of Liberia.
With the first semester behind them, it has come to our attention that the scholars have received a very good academic report and good GPA.
We would be appreciative of your support of the next academic year for Saybeh, Francilla, Tresa and Angelline. EGN is in need of any donation, small or large, to assist the continuation of their higher education.
Additionally, EGN is already planning to provide more scholarships to other girls to continue their higher education. With your support, we can continue to make a difference for girls next year.
