Beautiful World Canada Foundation Back to Members List
Beautiful World is dedicated to improving the lives of girls through the power of education. Our scholarships support girls across sub-Saharan Africa to thrive in secondary school, vocational, college, and university programs. We have dedicated our efforts to supporting girls living in poverty, many of whom are AIDS orphans or survivors of war and conflict. With only a primary or secondary school education, women are often driven back into the cycle of poverty when they are unable to continue their education in college or university. This is why we believe that hope for the future, and a new generation of women free from poverty, begins with education.
Beautiful World works with local partners in Uganda, Rwanda, and Sierra Leone to provide comprehensive support to dedicated students who have great potential but no financial means. Each scholarship provides everything a student needs for success, ranging from tuition to toothpaste. We then take it one step further to offer our students additional support through programs like mentorship, employment training, and medical care. As all of their needs are supported by Beautiful World, our students can focus entirely on their studies instead of worrying about basic survival.
Higher education can empower girls to create dramatic change within their communities. For every extra year that a girl stays in secondary school, her future income increases by 15% to 25%. When she earns an income, she will reinvest 90% of it back into her family, helping to lift them out of poverty. She will marry later and have fewer, healthier children. Her children will be more likely to attend school and receive regular medical care. With the knowledge and experience gained through education, these remarkable girls graduate with the skills to become the next generation of leaders, bringing hope to their communities.
