Scholarship + support
Education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty that puts ethnic minority girls at risk of being trafficked. When a girl is educated she has increased sense of self-worth, valuable skills to obtain higher paid jobs, and is able to provide for her family and become a leader in her community. Daughters Rising provides special scholarship funds for ethnic minority girls who need help.
Our scholarships are tailored to each individual girl's needs, depending on her career goals and financial necessity. Scholarships range from short-term vocational training programs such as trekking guide licenses to 4 year university degrees including room and board.
Our scholarship recipients have studied nursing, pharmacist education, hospitality management, communication arts, tourism and agriculture. We currently support 7 students in university and counting!
