we are changing the lives of individual girls.
School Girls Unite provides scholarships for 64 girls in Mali.
"The girls we sponsor are very proud of us
because they see us as big sisters
who are educated!"
Cost: $70/year in Mali vs. $70/day in the U.S. for an elementary student.
"Getting political leaders involved in this global issue is a great glimmer of hope for our generation to care and believe that we are capable of tackling such a large problem."

"Long live School Girls and Filles Unies. Thanks to this scholarship program, the girls are dressed like their schoolmates, they are not fearful anymore, they are very alert and happy; they are among the top five students in their class."
~ Fall Bagayoko, Principal, N'Tjilla School, Mali
"I think School Girls Unite students are very persuasive. The last increase of $200 million for international assistance [Education For All] was due to your efforts. Thank you for what you've done and what you continue to do."
~ U.S. Congressman Chris Van Hollen
