They provide scholarships for girls to achieve their potential through workshops that teach goal setting, confidence building and career planning.
There is a critical gender imbalance in the world that has a particularly adverse affect in underdeveloped countries. Women and girls are living in poverty simply because they have no opportunity to earn a living but by providing them education, One Girl Can can change everything.
Our salon sponsors Sarah Aciro to attend her schooling in Uganda. Sarah is 16 years old and the first in her family to attend secondary school. Her father is deceased, her mother is a peasant farmer and she has 4 other siblings at home. It has been hard for her mother to provide for food and other basic needs since her father passed away last year. Sarah and her siblings had to drop out of school for awhile to help their mother and because they could not afford the fees to go to school. She aspires to be a doctor one day and then return to her home to serve her family and the community in which she lives. Sarah describes herself as quiet, a god fearing girl, likes to study the bible, hardworking and disciplined. Through Ag Hair and One Girl Can, we are able to give Sarah an education and a chance at a better life.
