Programs

Our approach is anchored in education

Education quality

Long-term scholarships ensure girls can enroll in school. A girl in school is safe and has a secure future. She is much less likely to be at risk for child marriage, child trafficking, and child labor.

With holistic support programs:

Education quality

We help teachers move beyond rote memorization and teacher-centered instruction to incorporate more critical thinking and other methods in their classrooms.

Mentoring

Young female leaders who have graduated from our program serve as role models and community liaisons while monitoring the progress of Little Sisters.

Community Support

Girls deserve to learn and grow in strong and supportive families, school environments, and communities. Advocacy, micro-finance, and other community-based programs address challenges that surround Little Sisters.

Health

Little Sisters Fund provides basic preventative healthcare as well as health and sanitation education. Little Sisters Fund can also provide financial assistance in case of emergency.
