Girls Global Education Fund

In partnership with the Asian University for Women, Connecther's Girls Global Education Fund will provide scholarships to deserving students all throughout the developing world with a focus on the Middle East, Southeast Asia and Africa.

Congratulations to Pooja Khati, who won the first Let Girls Learn prize for her film Asma, a portrait of a 13-year-old Bangladeshi girl who had to quit school to run her family's tea stand. In the film we see Asma working from 5 AM to midnight each day after just a few hours of sleep. She clearly expresses her dream of a bigger life. I want to study," she says. "Those who study have importance. In honor of Asma, Connecther has started a new Girls Global Education Fund. All donations to the fund will be matched up to $10,000 by The Stahl Family Foundation. Donate here to help us get 100 % of the match funds! The funds will provide scholarships for girls in the developing world. Asma will be the first recipient of these scholarship funds.
