Breaking news! g4g Global Scholarship launches 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.  We are thrilled to announce that we are launching a grant to provide college-level education in STEM-related areas to girls in disadvantaged communities around the world.  Our first stop 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 initiative. After Bangalore, Greenlight for Girls will replicate the project in other parts of the world.  We invite you to take part in helping to send these 8 bright girls to university.

 

Join the Chain of Change now! Help fund their college scholarship!
