Shukuru helps girls invest in their own education.

High school is the road less traveled for a girl in Africa.

JoAnne’s #38for38 birthday wish

Last December, Shukuru was launched to help 38 adolescent girls realize that SHE is the solution in a society that marginalizes girls’ education. How? By self-financing her own secondary school fees.

The past 11 months have begun to prove this message.

This year I’m dedicating my birthday to our 38 Shukuru Girls. My birthday wish is that these young girls continue to have the opportunity to realize her own potential, become self-reliant, and spark change in her community.

I’m asking $38 or more from everyone I know to champion the 38 Shukuru Girls who are changing how they and their fellow sisters are able to get an education.

Your generous birthday donation will help these budding female entrepreneurs and rising scholars by keeping Shukuru’s program thriving!

I want my day of birth to make a difference for others. Please help me celebrate.
