General Status Update

May 2018

 

Our first recipient of the Global Girls Education Fund, Asma Akter, 15, has managed to stay in school despite pressure to go back to work to help support the family. She is working with a private tutor to catch up academically. She can now read English, and she is improving in other subjects as well. "Asma is eager to know about different things," says her tutor. "She loves to explore new ideas."   

Asha Devi, 25, has completed her master’s degree from Central European University thanks to support from GGEF. Her degree is in gender studies, so she is in the perfect position to help elevate other women and girls.

These two success stories are two of 11 girls, ages 12 to 26, who are staying in school thanks to financial support from Connecther.

Asma by Pooja Khati, Asian University for Women

This is a story about a thirteen year old girl, Asma. She is not a normal child; she doesn't have a childhood. Neither she has friends nor she goes to school. Due to poverty and lack of opportunities, her life is limited in a Tea shop.  Asma is the first recipient of Connecther's Girls Global Education Fund!
