Provide a Scholarship for 8 Bright Girls in India
Greenlight for Girls believes that the future is full of possibilities and that every girl has the right to dream big. But there are bright girls in many parts of the world for whom accessing the possibilities that life has to offer is a bit of a challenge. College education is an expensive affair, we all know that and for parents’ with monthly incomes ranging from $40 to $60, saving money for their children’s education is not an option. The Global Scholarship Project is an attempt to empower these girls by giving wings for the dreams to take off. Our objective is raise awareness and funds to send a select group of girls inclined to study science to college. We also believe that this would be a Chain of Change and wouldn’t just end with the chosen few.
Where is Global Scholarship Project taking place now?
Our first location is Bangalore in India. Known as the Silicon Valley of India, roughly 10% of Bangalore’s population lives in slums. 8 girls with exceptional academic records with dreams of pursuing a career in Science have been chosen and Greenlight for Girls would help funding their college education through the Global Scholarship Project. After Bangalore, Greenlight for Girls will replicate the project in other parts of the world.
How did we identify these 8 girls?
It was important for us to identify girls who truly needed the scholarship and had an inclination to study science. With the help of our two amazing official partners (links to Parikrma & Nele) in Bangalore, we were able to do just that. After interviewing many candidates a decision was made. 4 girls from each of our official partners were identified. Each of these girls are unique in their own way with different stories but with one similar goal. They all want to be respected in the society and be treated an equal.
$20 Will provide bus/train tickets to visit their families from university for 2 girls for holidays. $50 Will buy 1 year of college supplies, books and access to internet for 1 girl. $80 Will provide with 3 months of nutritious food, clean water and medical visits when needed for 1 girl. $100 Will provide 4 months of university accommodation and tuition fees for 1 girl.
