Ambassadors’ Girls’ Scholarship Program: Girls’ Mentoring Resource Guide

2008 — Girls account for more than half of the 33 million children in Africa who do not attend school due to economic hardship or other circumstances. To address this gap in girls’ education, the Africa Education Initiative–Ambassadors’ Girls’ Scholarship Program (AEI–AGSP) was launched to provide scholarships and mentoring to girls in sub-Saharan Africa. AGSP provides school fees, books, school supplies and uniforms — as well as mentoring in HIV/AIDS and life skills — for children in primary school.
