OUR Story

Founder, Christina Braden visited the State of Uttar Pradesh in January 2018.  The reason for her trip was to participate in Polio inoculations in the rural areas of Agra, India with Rotary International.  She was able to tour schools and visit with families in the rural areas.  Walking the villages and seeing the conditions there, she felt a responsibility to help, to make a difference to break the cycle for the underprivileged girls. 

 

UNESCO, Census 2011, UNICEF (State of the World's Children), ILOA states a shocking 17.7 million children in India are out of school. Working in hazardous conditions, living on the street, braving hunger, poverty and violence.  Childhood for them has become an endless struggle to survive.  Less than half of India's children between the age of 6 and 14 go to school.  On an average an upper primary school is 3 km away in 22% of areas under habitations. Education is both the means as well as the end to a better life: the means because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one's awareness on a range of issues – from healthcare to appropriate social behavior to understanding one's rights – and in the process help him/her evolve as a better citizen.

We have made their education our mission. You too can support online to ensure that poverty doesn't stand in the way of a child's education. Support online and take them a step closer to their dreams.

Join and help us in our efforts to put every child in school.

  

about

Educate HER is a non-profit organization and we raise money to fund education scholarships for girls in underserved countries like Guatemala and India.  We support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy. We help provide an opportunity for girls in underserved countries who are dramatically underprivileged and unable to attend upper grades in school without financial support. Each of these girls has her own unique story of why she needs your help.
When you give to Educate HER you are changing her future! The impact on her life will be huge – but the onward effect is even more important. Her entire family benefits now. Her future children benefit from an educated mother – in fact, research has shown that child mortality rates improve when the mother is educated.
Educate HER currently partners with The Rotary Club of Agra Taj Mahal to coordinate and manage all scholarships to India and Amigos de Guatemala for scholarships given in Guatemala. You can make a difference by attending one of our fundraiser or by giving a cash donation.  Every little bit helps!  Join our mailing list and keep up to date with a progress report of each student we support.
One girl scholarship impact’s 30 families, which is 230 people in her community.
