Shukuru has developed an entrepreneurial program where girls in Africa earn money and donors match their savings. We provide the seed capital, a business model that’s proven to work in their culture and an educational savings account. Our donors match each girl’s profits. One year in our program and a girl will have enough for all four years of high school.
Shukuru is not just sending girls to school, we’re teaching them to be the solution to their problems. Entrepreneurship teaches innovation, negotiation and problem solving. Girls develop the skills and self-confidence to make choices that lead to better, healthier lives. Donor matching shows the girls that they are worth being educated and someone believes in them.
