These AGSP scholars in Benin are ready for showers in their new raincoats!  World Education partnered with the US Agency for International Development (USAID) to implement the Ambassadors Girls Scholarship Program (AGSP) throughout sub-Saharan Africa from 2004 – 2011.

World Education managed the program in 13 West African countries in collaboration with local NGOs.  AGSP provided more than 188,000 scholarships to cover educational costs for 73,000 girls and boys who are economically disadvantaged, disabled, orphaned, and/or affected by HIV and AIDS.

The Bantwana Initiative, a World Education program, helps local communities in sub-Saharan Africa support orphaned and vulnerable children affected by HIV, AIDS, and poverty.  This mother embraces her two children in Tanzania, where Bantwana works at the community level to create an integrated network of essential service provision for vulnerable children and families in the Manyara, Tanga, Kilimanjaro, and Arusha regions.
