Project Princess Amount Needed: $15,761
In Uganda, half of girls 15 to 24 can’t read. Only one in five attends high school. Around 40 percent are married before they turn 15. Twenty-four percent become pregnant as teenagers. Project Princess exists to change that devastating data. With the vision of supporting, educating and empowering girls to become responsible leaders of the next generation, Project Princess provides vocational, health and social counseling for teen girls in Uganda. Your support gives young women the life skills and spiritual support they need to stay in school—and believe in their ability to change their futures.
Our Promise to You: Your gift will go to our Thriving Kids Africa campaign fund, which will then disperse funds to the comprehensive projects the campaign supports. Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for these projects incurred through June 30, 2020, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
