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.
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.

Time is running out to earn the funding necessary to pay the tuition fees for our three scholarship recipients, Francillia, Saybeh and Tresa. EGN requires $2000 for the next academic year, starting in September of 2017.
Our mission is to fundraise and financially support training of female teachers in Liberia, a nation in which girls still lag behind boys in enrollment, retention and completion rates all levels of education.
EGN specifically supports girls in the remote areas of River Gee and Maryland counties located in southern Liberia who will complete their teacher education at the William V.S. Tubman University in Harper City, Maryland County.
There is a convincing case that increasing the level of education overall, for boys and girls, will provide a better standard of living for families. The positive effect on families and communities is even more pronounced when the number of female teachers grows to equal that of male teachers. Liberia is still facing many constraints in education: lack of female teaching staff, poor infrastructure, funding and resources for education in Liberia.
We want to invite all our network friends to donate to this important cause. together we can change people life. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to the generous donations of our network friends, we were able to raise $2000 US to support female students coming from rural areas to study higher education at William V.S. Tubman University in Harper, Maryland County, Liberia.
EGN has been able to provide three full scholarships to Francilla K. Williams and Saybeh Tejeleh to study in the College of Education (Teaching Major) for three years and Tresa Dilieh to study in the College of Health Sciences (Nursing Major) for the present academic year 2016-2017.
All of the students come from very poor villages in the rural areas of Maryland and River Gee Counties in the southeast of Liberia. The EGN scholarship covers tuition, fees and board.
We congratulate our three young recipients on their hard work in their studies; each has maintained a high GPA due to their academic performance.
We hope that all network friends will continue to support Francilla, Saybeh and Tresa to achieve their dream of completing a professional degree and improving their quality of life. We hope one day they will able to help other young women students to achieve their goal just as we have helped them.
Remember that together, we can change peoples life.
